    Current middleware technologies cannot meet the demands of new application areas, such as embedded and mobile systems, that require mechanisms for dealing with a changing environment. This article reviews several approaches for providing adaptive resource management for middleware. Current middleware technologies, such as the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) and .NET (http://msdn.... View full abstract»

    America Online (AOL) bought the Seattle-based multimedia search engine Singingfish (www.singingfish.com) from global media and entertainment conglomerate Thomson for an undisclosed sum. However, whether the purchase marked the immediate beginning of the mainstream era for nontext-based search or was instead a long-term gamble in a market still getting used to the intricacies of text-based engines ...

    Knowing whether there are high explosives inside suspicious objects has many obvious benefits to the military and emergency teams that have to move them. A team of students in Florida, USA has devised an unusual technique for remotely checking objects: shooting them with special bullets. The project originated when the graduate students at the University of Florida in Gainesville were asked to com... View full abstract»

    New information systems and recent applications (grid computing, Web Services, and so on) are often distributed, large-scale, open, heterogeneous, and characterized by a dynamic environment. To model these complex systems, researchers have spent much effort during the last few years on multiagent systems. The aim is to model complex distributed systems as a set of (possibly organized) software age... View full abstract»
