Knowledge Representation of Social and Coalition Factors in Coalition Formation Using An Ontology Framework

Azleena Mohd Kassim, Yu-N Cheah, and Bukhary Ikhwan Ismail
Abstract—Cooperative work from the computational aspects can be addressed in the area of coalition formation where it is driven to accomplish optimal groups to perform certain given tasks. For a human-centric coalition formation, recent works usually focus on individual capability related to the task, but the social aspects are often neglected. Besides, coalition formation is often applied or used as a one-off process whereby the formed coalitions and its knowledge are not stored or reused. Thus, the objective of this paper is to present a new framework for coalition formation known as the Social- and Knowledge-based Coalition Formation (SKCF). The sub-objectives are: 1) to define coalition and social factors for a coalition formation model, 2) to build knowledge representation scheme to store knowledge from coalitions that are successfully formed. To achieve the objective, the social and coalition factors are compiled from existing related works to suit the objective of forming groups of people in a cooperative setting. The ontology is introduced as a knowledge repository where the representation schema of the ontology is developed to manage and reuse the social and coalition factors.

Index Terms—Coalition factors, knowledge management, ontology representation, social factors.
