    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (184 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Internet search has a strong business model that permits a free service to users, so it is difficult to see why, if at all, there should be open source offerings as well. This paper first discusses open source search and a rationale for the computer science community at large to get involved. Because there is no shortage of core open source components for at least some of the tasks involved, the A... View full abstract»

    Knowledge representation technologies play a fundamental role in any autonomous system that includes deliberative capability and that internalizes models of its internal and external environments. Integrating both high- and low-end autonomous functionality seamlessly in autonomous architectures is currently one of the major open problems in robotics research. UAVs offer especially difficult challe... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. Computer systems in which autonomous software agents negotiate with one another in order to come to mutually acceptable agreements are fast becoming commonplace in a wide range of networked systems (e.g., in the semantic Web, grid computing, pervasive computing and peer-to-peer systems). In such systems, agents are required to participate in a range of negotiation scenario... View full abstract»

    In this paper we describe ICARUS, an adaptive architecture for intelligent physical agents. We contrast the framework's assumptions with those of earlier architectures, taking examples from an in-city driving task to illustrate our points. Key differences include: primacy of perception and action over problem solving, separate memories for categories and skills, a hierarchical organization on both... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    One of the principal problems of online help is the mismatch between the specialized knowledge and technical vocabulary of experts who are providing the help, and the relative naivete of novices, who usually are often not in a position to understand solutions expressed by the expert in their own terms. Most of the interfaces are plagued by recurrent key problems: 1) elicitation - how to ask questi... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (464 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Evolution, understood as the powerful interplay of reproduction, variation, and selection, represents an excellent tool for optimization in populations of simple and complex entities even under conditions where only limited information is available. The principle underlying this optimization heuristic was discovered and formulated already by Charles Darwin. In the nineteen-sixties evolutionary opt... View full abstract»

    Over the past few years World Wide Web has established as a vital resource for news. With the continuous growth in the number of available news Web sites and the diversity in their presentation of content, there is an increasing need to organize the news related information on the Web and keep track of it. In this paper, we present automated techniques for extracting metadata instance information ... View full abstract»

    One of the key research challenges that we will face in developing the Wisdom Web is to make it capable of seamlessly offering solutions to users in dealing with their real-world problems. In order to make this possible, individual contents or services should be developed and written following the syntax and semantics of a pre-defined method for distributed problem solving on the Web.

    This paper addresses the distributed resource optimization issue in heterogeneous Web environments, where both resource nodes and service requests may be heterogeneous. Specifically, this paper presents an agent-based mechanism, where agents are employed to carry service requests. Agents are equipped with three behaviors, namely, least-loaded move, less-loaded move, and random move, to search for ... View full abstract»

  • A virtual-service-domain based bidding algorithm for resource discovery in computational grid

    Resource discovery is a basic service in grid computing: gives a description of resources desired and finds the available one to match the description. In computational grid, how to discover resources efficiently has become a crucial factor to evaluate the performance in the whole system. In this paper, we present a bid-based resource discovery algorithm, which converts a resource request into a b... View full abstract»

  • INFO: an improving strategy for searching the small world networks

    Many real-world network systems demonstrate the small world phenomenon. The applicability of these systems depends on efficient decentralized techniques to search and retrieve data. In this paper, we propose an INquiry-based FOrwarding (INFO) strategy to search the small world networks. When a node initiates a search with the INFO strategy, it first sends an inquiry message to all its neighbors. T... View full abstract»

  • Towards a semantics-based framework for KD- and IR-style resource querying on XML-based P2P information systems

    A semantics-based framework for KD- and IR-style resource querying on XML-based P2P information systems is described in this paper. Particularly, we present and discuss in detail the XML data model and the knowledge representation model of such a framework, which are both based on the amenity of adding semantics to data. As main result, we obtain a collection of techniques that allows us to effici... View full abstract»

    In open environments like the Web, and open multiagent and Peer2Peer systems, consent among the autonomous, self-interested knowledge sources and users very often cannot be established, and the estimation of trustability and truthfulness of knowledge sources may not be possible. Moreover, competing viewpoints and their communicative contexts even provide valuable meta-knowledge about the intention... View full abstract»

    The Web was designed as an information space by Tim Berners-Lee, with the goal not only that it should be available for human reading, but also that machine would be able to participate in and help users to communicate with each other. Web information integration can only free them from the tedious tasks of finding the relevant data sources. But the most existing systems do not really integrate in... View full abstract»

    We introduce the concept of community-driven ontology management and demonstrate the added value to conventional ontology management of being community-driven. Further, we present an implementation of an infrastructure supporting community-driven ontology management. The implemented infrastructure was deployed as a part of the intranet at DERI - Digital Enterprise Research Institute, and the commu... View full abstract»

    Cycle detection in graphs and digraphs has received wide attention and several algorithms are available for this purpose. While the Web may be modeled as a digraph, such algorithms would not be of much use due to both the scale of the Web and the number of uninteresting cycles and sequences in it. We propose a novel sequence detection algorithm for Web pages, and highlight its importance for searc... View full abstract»

    As more and more people join online communities, the ability to better understand members' roles becomes critical to preserving and improving the health of those communities. We propose a novel approach to identifying key members and their roles by discovering implicit knowledge from online communities. Viewing an online community as a social network connected by poster-poster relationships, the a... View full abstract»
