1. A method for discovery of semantic data of a plurality of agents in a distributed networked system, the method comprising:
sending a semantic profile with associated data for each of the plurality of agents to one or more receiving agents that are in direct communication with one or more of sending agents;
receiving, at each of the one or more receiving agents, the semantic profile and associated data from the respective one or more sending agents;
in response to determining at the one or more receiving agents that the received semantic profile includes an unknown semantic profile and associated data for an unknown agent, updating the semantic profile of the one or more receiving agents to include the unknown semantic profile and associated data for the unknown agent; and
after updating the semantic profile of the one or more receiving agents, iteratively sending, receiving and updating the semantic profiles of the plurality of agents until none of the one or more receiving agents receive any semantic profile and associated data that includes any unknown semantic profile and associated data for any unknown agent.
