    Service advertisement and discovery technologies enable device cooperation and reduce configuration hassles, a necessity in increasingly mobile computing environments. This article surveys five competing but similar “service discovery suites” and looks at efforts to bridge the technologies. Although most of these service discovery suites promise similar functionality (namely, reduced c... View full abstract»

  • The Semantic Web: the roles of XML and RDF

    XML and RDF are the current standards for establishing semantic interoperability on the Web, but XML addresses only document structure. RDF better facilitates interoperation because it provides a data model that can be extended to address sophisticated ontology representation techniques. We explain the role of ontologies in the architecture of the Semantic Web. We then briefly summarize key elemen... View full abstract»

    Distributed, real-time multimedia applications on the Internet permit users to cooperate in new and more interesting ways for collaborative teamwork and net-based learning. The mStar environment features an agent-based architecture, implemented in Java, which preserves compatibility with the dominant Mbone paradigm for IP multicast. The shared software environment provides an integrated solution f... View full abstract»

    European Community programs have been supporting agent-related projects for 15 years, initially on a relatively small scale but more recently through broader collaborative initiatives. One distinguishing feature of European programs is their emphasis on coordination and the support of value-adding activities that exceed the scope of specific projects. Another is the holistic approach, which ensure... View full abstract»

    Traditional design tools usually model collaborative work as a process of data access and sharing. In globally distributed environments, however, it becomes important to model the interdisciplinary perspectives that individual contributors bring to the data. We refer to the individuals involved in the design process as stakeholders. Each stakeholder comes to the project with a different perspectiv... View full abstract»

  • Responsible agent behavior: a distributed computing perspective

    Software agents that are autonomous, communicative, and possibly intelligent processes raise new questions for developers of distributed systems. Specifically, what is responsible agent behavior, and who, as the owner, is legally responsible for it? The answers involve an understanding of human-agent interaction, agent-oriented middleware, and social behavior. Some software agents will have a suff... View full abstract»

    The Internet infrastructure must evolve from best-effort service to meet the needs of different customers and applications. With Internet traffic differentiation, service providers can support a range of offerings, such as loss or delay bounds and network bandwidth allocation, to meet different performance requirements. The differentiated services (Diffserv) architecture provides a scalable approa... View full abstract»

    The problem of protecting an execution environment from possibly malicious mobile agents has been studied extensively, but the reverse problem, protecting the agent from malicious execution environments, has not. We propose an approach that relies on trusted and tamper-resistant hardware to prevent breaches of trust, rather than correcting them after the fact. We address the question of how to bas...
