Trading Agent Design and Analysis
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Wolfgang Ketter, Chair
Trading agents have become a prominent application area in artificial intelligence because of their potential benefits in electronic commerce, and because they present a stiff challenge to models of rational decision-making. A wide variety of trading scenarios and agent approaches have been studied, creating a broad and rich research area. This workshop focused on the design and evaluation of trading agents. Papers on trading agent architectures, decision-making algorithms, theoretical analysis, empirical evaluations of agent strategies in negotiation scenarios, and game-theoretic analyses, were all within the scope of the workshop.
