Multi-agent causal models for dependability analysis

In this paper we discuss multi-agent causal models, which are an extension of causal Bayesian networks to the multi-agent case. In this paper we illustrate how these re- cently introduced models could prove useful for dependabil- ity analysis. Their main difference with other graphical modeling techniques that have been applied to the prob- lem is that multi-agent causal models allow for multi-agent, privacy-preserving quantitative causal inference in models with hidden variables.
