Absolute Model of Autonomy and Power: Toward Group Effects

Henry Hexmoor

We present a model of absolute autonomy and power in agent systems. This absolute sense of autonomy captures the agent’s liberty over an agent’s preferences. Our model characterizes an affinity between autonomy and power. We argue that agents with similar individual autonomy and power experience an adjusted level of autonomy and power due to being in a group of like agents. We then illustrate our model on the problem of task allocation.
