    Effective study of autonomous agents is a challenging activity, for researchers and programmers alike. In this paper we introduce a new agent environment built on top of the tank-simulation game Robocode. We consider this game a good choice for testing agent programming strategies and an excellent learning opportunity. We integrated SWI-Prolog into Robocode and built an architecture for writing ag...

    The development of distributed systems poses different issues that developers must carefully take into consideration. Web services and (mobile) agents are two promising paradigms that are increasingly exploited in distributed systems design: they both try, albeit with very different conceptual abstractions, to govern unpredictability and complexity in wide-open distributed scenarios. In this paper... View full abstract»

  • Connecting methodologies and infrastructures in the development of agent systems

    In the building of agent systems developers can be supported by both appropriate methodologies and infrastructures, which guide them in the different phases of the development and provide useful abstractions. Nevertheless, we assist to a situation in which methodologies and infrastructures are not connected each other: the products of the analysis and design phases could not always be exploited in...

    This paper introduces a new model which is intended to combine the power of a connectionist engine based on fast matrix calculation, RDF based memory and inference mechanisms, and affective computing in a hybrid cognitive model. The model is called triple and has the following three parts: a reasoning module making advantage of RDF based long-term memory by performing fast inferences, a fast conne... View full abstract»

    We present an approach to plan representation in multi-actors scenarios that is suitable for flexible replanning and plan revision purposes. The key idea of the presented approach is in integration of (i) the results of an arbitrary HTN (hierarchical task network) -oriented planner with (ii) the concept of commitments, as a theoretically studied formalism representing mutual relations among intent...

    Interactions and social relationships among agents are an important aspect of multi-agent systems. In this paper, we explore how such relationships and their relation to agentpsilas objectives influence agentpsilas decision-making. Building on the framework of stochastic games, we propose a classification scheme, based on a formally defined concept of interaction stance, for categorizing agentpsil... View full abstract»

    Securely managing shared information in distributed environments across multiple organizations is a challenge. Distributed information management systems designed to this purpose, must be able to support individual organizationspsila information policies whilst ensuring global consistency and completeness of information.

    The location management problem corresponds to the management of the network configuration with the objective of minimizing the costs involved. It can be defines using several different schemes that principally consider the location update and the paging costs. The location area and reporting cells are two common strategies used to solve the location management problem. In this paper we present a ... View full abstract»

    We compare three different methods of word sense disambiguation applied to the disambiguation of a selected set of 13 Polish words. The selected words express different problems for sense disambiguation. As it is hard to find works for Polish in this area, our goal was to analyse applicability and limitations of known methods in relation to Polish and Polish language resources and tools. The obtai...

    The construction of a wordnet from scratch requires intelligent software support. An accurate measure of semantic relatedness can be used to extract groups of semantically close words from a corpus. Such groups help a lexicographer make decisions about synset membership and synset placement in the network. We have adapted to Polish the well-known algorithm of Clustering by Committee, and tested it... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an immune-based approach to problem of binary classification and novelty detection in high-dimensional datasets. It is inspired by the negative selection mechanism, which discriminates between self and nonself elements using only partial information. Our approach incorporates two types of detectors: binary and real-valued. Relatively short binary receptors are used for primary ... View full abstract»

    Data cleaning is a process of maintaining data quality in information systems. Current data cleaning solutions require reference data to identify incorrect or duplicate entries. This article proposes usage of data mining in the area of data cleaning as effective in discovering reference data and validation rules from the data itself. Two algorithms designed by the author for data attribute correct... View full abstract»

    Real-time execution of planned routes often requires re-planning, especially in dynamic, highly unpredictable environments. Ad-hoc re-planning in case of failure of an optimal (suboptimal) plan leads to deterioration of solution quality. Moreover, it becomes costly and often unmanageable under real time constraints. This paper describes an approach of a partitioning scheme for urban route planning... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a nonlinear system identification based on support vector machines (SVM) has been addressed. A family of SVM-ARMA models is presented in order to integrate the input and the output in the reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS). The performances of the different SVM-ARMA formulations for system identification are illustrated with two systems and compared with the least square method... View full abstract»
