Abstract

Coalition formation is an approach driven to achieve optimal groups to perform certain specified tasks. Coalition formation is often treated as a one-off process, thus the successful coalitions and its knowledge are not stored or reused. Furthermore, human-based coalition formation mainly focuses on individual capability related to the task, overlooking the social aspects. The objective of this paper is to discuss the Social- and Knowledge-based Coalition Formation (SKCF) developed in social networks environment, combining selfish agent and cooperative agent approach. The social and coalition factors are adopted from existing works with a new factor introduced to fulfill the knowledge reusability. The knowledge repository is built using ontology in a social network setting to store and reuse the social and coalition factors which will be applied as multi-objective optimization in the coalition formation.
