DAI in Collaborative Design
I believe that computers could play a significant role in facilitating collaboration among engineers. One could envision a framework where several agents, where each agent could bc viewed as a combination of a human and a computer, participate in a design process through a shared workspace. This could bc viewed as a collaborative agent-based framework. In this paper I will discuss the various research issues that need be addressed by engineers, computer scientists, managers, psychologists to realize the collaborative agent-based framework.
