Abstract
A fundamental difficulty faced by groups of agents
that work together is how to efficiently coordi-
nate their efforts. This paper presents techniques
that allow heterogeneous agents to more efficiently
solve coordination problems by acquiring proce-
dural knowledge. In particular, each agent au-
tonomously learns coordinated procedures that re-
flect her contributions towards successful past joint
behavior. Empirical results validate the significant
benefits of coordinated procedures.
1 Introduction
Research on groups of agents that work together is a large and
growing field that covers topics such as autonomous robots,
