Multi-agent systems, in particular, have utilized diversity to achieve aggregate properties such as efficiency of resource allocations, and fairness in these allocations. However, diversity has usually been introduced manually by the system designer. This paper proposes a decentralized technique, clonal plasticity, that makes homogeneous agents self-diversify, in an autonomic way. We show that clonal plasticity is competitive with manual diversification, at achieving efficient resource allocations and fairness.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Journal:||Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems||Volume:||32||Issue:||2||Start page:||275||End page:||311||Copyright (published version):||2017 the Author||Keywords:||Clonal plasticity; Multi-agent systems; Autonomic; Diversity; Hetetogeneity||DOI:||10.1007/s10458-017-9380-x||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
