Abstract

Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) are suitable for dealing with applications where the environment is both dynamic and very complex, with several type of competitors to get involved. Thus, in this paper, we import MAS conceptualization into the well-known (quasi) Pay-As-You-GO social security scheme; practically useful for many Western Economies. First, we start our analysis with the individual agent and subsequently we move towards a system containing many (cognitive) social agents that considers relations, coordinations and interactions.
