Better Eager Than Lazy? How Agent Types Impact the Successfulness of Implicit Coordination [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Epistemic planning can be used for decision making in multi-agent situations with distributed knowledge and capabilities. In recent work, we proposed a new notion of strong policies with implicit coordination. With this it is possible to solve planning tasks with joint goals from a single-agent perspective without the agents having to negotiate about and commit to a joint policy at plan time. We study how and under which circumstances the decentralized application of those policies leads to the desired outcome.
