Description

CArtAgO (Common ARTifact infrastructure for AGents Open environments) is a general purpose framework/infrastructure that makes it possible to program and execute virtual environments also said virtual / application / software environments for multi-agent systems. CArtAgO is based on the Agents & Artifacts (A&A) meta-model for modelling and designing multi-agent systems. A&A introduces high-level metaphors taken from human cooperative working environments: agents as computational entities performing some kind of task/goal-oriented activity (in analogy with human workers), and artifacts as resources and tools dynamically constructed, used, manipulated by agents to support/ realise their individual and collective activities (like artifacts in human contexts). Actually, A&A is based on interdisciplinary studies involving Activity Theory and Distributed Cognition as main conceptual background frameworks.
