Creation of Information Profiles in Distributed Databasesas a Game Problem
Juliusz L. Kulikowski (Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering, Poland)
Abstract: There is considered a problem of information profiles and information resources collection forming in distributed data- and/or knowledge bases as a result of an attempt to satisfy the information requirements of the customers represented by their information profiles. It is shown that the interests of managers of data- and knowledge bases are not fully convergent and that they participate in a composite, partially co-operative, partially non-co-operative n-persons games. There is given a formal description of the strategies used in such games, as well as the methods of decision making of the players on the level of open access (OADB) as well as on local (LDB) databases one.
