Algorithms of distributed artificial intelligence, including Multi-Agent systems, were defined. The relationship between Multi-Agent Systems and the Internet of Things has been revealed. The definition and areas of application of the Internet of Things are given. The literature is analyzed and examples of the use of Multi-Agent systems and the Internet of Things are given. The advantages and disadvantages of this method were determined. The implementation of an agent approach in the Internet of Things is a promising direction for further research, but for further development it is necessary to solve existing problems.
