Experiment descriptions

This page lists experiments in cultural knowledge evolution performed with Lazy lavender in the way of a laboratory notebook. Experiment descriptions and analysis are maintained over git (hence somewhat accountable); results may be found here or in other zip archives.

Experiments with learning and adaptation of decision ontologies (DOLA)

These are two steps experiments in which agents first individualy learn to take decision and then adapt what they learnt during collective practice [Bourahla2021a].

Experiments with inter-generational transmition of learned ontologies (DOTG)

In these experiments, agents transmit knowledge from generation to generation by extending the protocols of DOLA [Bourahla2022a].

Experiments with ontology refinement through communication (ORTC)

In these kind of experiments agents do not use alignments, they maintain a memory of their interaction and notice when other agents have more refined classes than theirs. They then exchange pieces of class definitions to include in their own ontologies.

Experiments with revision of networks of ontologies (NOOR)

In these kinds of experiments, agents revise alignments between their ontologies as a result of playing a simple interaction game [Euzenat2014b, c, 2017a, b]
