    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s): xxii
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (175 KB)

    Computer science is entering a new generation. The previous generation was based on abstracting from hardware. The emerging generation comes from abstracting from software and sees all resources as services in a service-oriented architecture (SOA). In a world of services, it is the service that counts for a customer and not the software or hardware components that implement the service. Service-or... View full abstract»

  • Conversational Informatics and Human-CenteredWeb Intelligence

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s): xxiii
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (170 KB)

    Conversation is the most natural communication means for people to communicate with each other. I believe that conversation plays a critical role in realizing a paradigm of human-centered web intelligence in which web intelligence engines are grounded on the human society. We are currently building a computational framework for circulating information in a conversational fashion, using information... View full abstract»

    At this point, restricted to rather specialized areas, and even there must be taken with a grain of salt. But at the same time you can't afford not to know it; there is currently no better underpinning for understanding multiagent systems. I will elaborate using experience in both academia and industry.

  • The Challenge of Cultural Modeling for Inferring Intentions and Behavior

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s): xxv
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (173 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Accounting for social, cultural, and political factors must form the basis for understanding decision-making, actions, and reactions of individuals, thus driving their behaviors and intentions. Clearly, the individual is not wholly defined by just personal social, cultural, and political beliefs but also functions within a group of individuals. Within these groups (or organizations), they assimila... View full abstract»

    In this talk, we examine the basic principles, ideas, and strategies of granular computing, and look at the potential applications and implications of granular computing to the studies of Web Intelligence (WI) and Brain Informatics (BI).We argue that granular computing may provide the necessary theory for designing and implementing new types of web-based information processing systems and developi...

  • Revisiting ADOPT-ing and its Feedback Schemes

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):3 - 9
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (387 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Here we revisit ADOPT-ing and bring two new contributions. One contribution consists of developing variations on the algorithms keeping the improvement in length of chain of causal messages without an increase in the total number of messages. While past experiments have shown that sending more feedback is better than sending the minimal information needed for correctness, new experiments show that... View full abstract»

  • An Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm for Solving the Multidimensional Knapsack Problems

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):10 - 16

    Ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm is a metaheuristic and stochastic search technology, which has been one of the effective tools for solving discrete optimization problems. However, there are two bottlenecks for large-scaled optimization problems: the ACO algorithm needs too much time to convergent and the solutions may not be really optimal. This paper proposes a novel ACO algorithm for the... View full abstract»

  • Dynamic Area Coverage using Faulty Multi-Agent Swarms

    We consider the problem of distributed coverage of an unknown two-dimensional environment using a swarm of mobile mini-robots. In contrast to previous approaches for robotic area coverage, we assume that each robot (agent) in our system is limited in its communication range and memory capacity. Agents are also susceptible to sensor noise while communicating with other agents, and, can be subject t... View full abstract»

    Intelligent agents are gaining widespread applications in many trading markets. Although the US wholesale power market comprises a large commodity market, the mechanism of power trading is not clearly investigated. We explore the problem via an intelligent agent-based approach. We create an artificial wholesale market, where many different traders are equipped with learning capabilities. We valida... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (401 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Recently, agent-based approaches are considered as an appropriate solution to address the issue of the overwhelming data traffic in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Theoretically, these approaches would eliminate the redundancy and achieve substantial energy gain. However, in practice, the reliability of sensor devices has been recognized as one of the crucial issues in wireless sensor networks. U... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1264 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we study the effect of an open environment to the behavior of an autonomous mobile agent. The focus of our study is in the emergent behavior. For this purpose, we use a particle system. With it, we can capture and simulate both the agent and its environment uniformly, to reveal the emergent properties. We illustrate the use of a particle system in analyzing the emergent behavior of ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a model of autonomy called autonomy with regard to an attribute applicable to cognitive and not cognitive artificial agents. Three criteria (global /partial, social / nonsocial, absolute / relative) are defined and used to describe the main characteristics of this type of autonomy. View full abstract»

    Intelligent agent is a fast emerging technology and has wide range of applications. Although there are several tools for agent development, there is few design tool to assist the conversion from paper based agent mental state design to effective representation of them in abstract data structures which can be used by the agent management system to create intelligent software agents.

    The dynamic nature of handling undesirable, irritant and toxic items during digestion process by the defense mechanism associated with the human gastrointestinal tract helps avoid intake of hazardous material in the body. The defense mechanism acts in coordination with the sensory organs and nervous system to keep a human healthy. In this paper, we have mapped the defense mechanism associated with...
