    In this presentation a look is taken at how the use of implant and electrode technology can be employed to create biological brains for robots, to enable human enhancement and to diminish the effects of certain neural illnesses. In all cases the end result is to increase the range of abilities of the recipients. An indication is given of a number of areas in which such technology has already had a... View full abstract»

    In this talk I will present experimental work in which a swarm of robots cooperate to solve problems that are too difficult for a single robot. In the talk, I will shortly describe the innovative robotic hardware that we built, called a swarm-bot, and the methodology we followed to develop algorithms for its control. Then I will focus on the capabilities of the swarm-bot robotic system by showing ... View full abstract»

  • Perspectives on Robotic Embodiment from a Developmental Cognitive Architecture

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):3 - 8
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Recent discussions in cognitive robotics have emphasised the role of embodiment and developmental learning. A novel developmental memory-based cognitive framework, and its associated computational architecture, is presented. This framework emphasises the low level sensory-motor aspects of developmental learning as a basis upon which higher-order cognitive functions can be bootstrapped autonomously... View full abstract»

    Requirements for which no recommendation can be calculated are unsatisfactory for the user. The detection and resolution of conflicts between those requirements and the product assortment is an important functionality to successfully guide the user to a solution. In this paper we introduce a new approach how to identify minimal conflict sets in over constrained problems through network analysis. C... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (219 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    An adaptive strategy for knowledge-based control of sophisticated plants is considered. The domain knowledge is structured using a set of ontologies - factual ontology and functional ontologies (for tasks, problem solving methods, way to realize the methods, activities - adaptive control, monitoring). The active part of the control system is accomplished using a multiagent system. An Ant Colony Op... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (366 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In the context of distributed and open systems, the dynamic evolution of the distributed entities (or services) and their adaptation is one of the main prevailing challenges. In this paper, our aim is to show that is possible to automate (at least partially) the discovery, the selection and the adaptation of components, on the one hand associating a semantic description based on functional and non...

  • A Learning Algorithm for Self-Organizing Maps Based on a Low-Pass Filter Scheme

    In this work a novel training algorithm is proposed for the formation of topology preserving maps. In the proposed algorithm the weights are updated incrementally by using a higher-order difference equation, which implements a low pass digital filter. It is shown that by suitably choosing the filter the learning process can adaptively follow a specific dynamic. View full abstract»

    Cutting analysis is a important and crucial task to detect and prevent problems during the petroleum well drilling process. Several studies have been developed for drilling inspection, but none of them takes care about analysing the generated cutting at the vibrating shale shakers. Here we proposed a system to analyse the cutting's concentration at the vibrating shale shakers, which can indicate p... View full abstract»

    Although RED has been widely used with TCP, however it has several known drawbacks [1]. The BLUE algorithm that benefits from a different structure has tried to compensate some of them in a successful way [2]. A quick review on active queue management algorithms from the very beginning indicates that most of them tried to improve classic algorithms. Some of them use network traffic history to achi...

    Gene expression microarrays are the most commonly available source of high-throughput biological data. Each microarray experiment is supposed to measure the gene expression levels of a set of genes in a number of different experimental conditions or time points. Integration of results from different microarray experiments to the specific analysis is an important and yet challenging problem. Direct... View full abstract»

    The most scientists agree that the adaptivity and the flexibility are crucial characteristics to build more robust and intelligent systems to resolve complex problems as the risk management. Intelligent agents represent an appropriate solution that may fulfill this requirement since they are able to operate autonomously and to adapt their behaviours according to the change of their environment.

    In this paper we discuss the need of a novel control architecture for managing the growing complexity in modern vehicles and outline a multi-layered approach for self-management in adaptive automotive systems. With this multi-layered control architecture it is possible to react in an adequate and quick way to changes in the supervised technical system. Especially for complex distributed real-time ...

  • Adaptive Agent-Based Self-Organization for Robust Hierarchical Topologies

    Virtual organizations in large-scale distributed environments can organize their communication in a hierarchical topology (i.e., trees). However, such topologies can be unreliable as local failures have a global impact in the organization. Hierarchical topologies need to adapt continuously to changes of the underlying environment. Pro-active and re-active self-organization can make such topologies... View full abstract»

    Adaptability to various environments is needed for a robot that supports our lives. Environmental identification is important for a mobile robot that works in multiple environments (e.g., different rooms). We present an environmental modeling method based on state representation, which represents a change in sensory information. Our model enables the mobile robot to identify which environment it i...
