Agent-based workflow has been proven its potential in overcoming issues in traditional workflow-based systems, such as decentralization, organizational issues, etc. The existing data mining tools provide workflow metaphor for data mining process visualization, audition and monitoring; these are particularly useful for distributed environments. In agent-based distributed data mining (ADDM), agents are an integral part of the system and can seamlessly incorporate with workflows. We describe a mechanism to use workflow in descriptive and executable styles to incorporate between workflow generators and executors. This paper shows that agent-based workflows can improve ADDM interoperability and flexibility, and also demonstrates the concepts and implementation with a supporting the argument, a multi-agent architecture and an agent-based workflow model are demonstrated. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
