When a group comes together to pursue a goal, how should the group interact? Both theory and practice show no single organization always performs best; the best organization depends on context. Therefore, a group should adapt how it interacts to fit the situation. In a Multi-Agent System (MAS), a Decision-Making Framework (DMF) specifies the allocation of decision-making and action-execution responsibilities for a set of goals among agents within the MAS. Adaptive Decision-Making Frameworks (ADMF) is the ability to change the DMF, changing which agents are responsible for decision-making and action-execution for a set of goals.
