HEDG is a small distributed research group working on theory
and practical implementations of multi-agent systems combining
flows of knowledge and value data. The HEDG pages at this
point are a working communication medium for the group.
Purpose of the project
To develop a theoretical model of a distributed system of combined value
and knowledge exchange among multiple agents, create prototype software
implementations of the model, and compare its performance with centralized
scheduling systems and purely value-exchange economic systems. Our goal is
to develop a better understanding of knowledge and value representation
flows in complex systems, create a software model, and implement prototypes
starting with a more efficient banner exchange system for Websites.
HEDG Mailing lists
The group has two moderated lists for discussion of theory of
hyper-economics and implementation issues by active HEDG group members.
Discussion topics include: economic model terminology and design
approaches, system architecture, algorithms, coding and other
implementation issues, and documentation. To be included into
