    Manufacturing companies are under pressure to find ways to customize their products quickly, and a new approach to an old idea holonics might provide the answer. A holon is a self-organizing unit that can communicate with other holons and make decisions autonomously. A holon both comprises subordinate parts and constitutes part of a larger system. Scientists interested in the holon's autonomous, c... View full abstract»

    Intelligent highway safety markers are only the beginning for truly intelligent highway systems and for applications of robotics in transportation. Our research has demonstrated a robot's ability to act as a smart safety barrel guiding traffic and serving as a visible barrier between traffic and work crews. Through GPS, geographic information systems, wireless communication, and advanced vehicular... View full abstract»

    The Essex intelligent dormitory, iDorm, uses embedded agents to create an ambient-intelligence environment. In a five-and-a-half-day experiment, a user occupied the iDorm, testing its ability to learn user behavior and adapt to user needs. The embedded agent discreetly controls the iDorm according to user preferences. Our work focuses on developing learning and adaptation techniques for embedded a... View full abstract»

    Context-aware environments must allow adaptive and autonomous access to context information. This multi-agent middleware uses a negotiation protocol and ontology model to make the environment more easily personalized at runtime and adapted and managed at provisioning time. In a pervasive environment, a wide range of devices and resources use heterogeneous networks to perform the tasks involved in ... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):30 - 31
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (480 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The Web-its resources and users-offers a wealth of information for data mining and knowledge discovery. Up to now, a great deal of work has been done applying data mining and machine learning methods to discover novel and useful knowledge on the Web. However, many techniques aim only at extracting knowledge for human users to view and use. Recently, more and more work addresses Web for knowledge t... View full abstract»

    Current search methods for mobile-Web content can be frustrating to use. To shorten searches for cell phone wallpaper images, VISCORS combines collaborative filtering with content-based image retrieval. An increasing selection of content is becoming available in the mobile-Web environment, where users navigate the Web using wireless devices such as cell phones and PDAs. The fast growth and excelle... View full abstract»

    As users navigate through online document collections on high-volume Web servers, they depend on good recommendations. We present a novel maximum-entropy algorithm for generating accurate recommendations and a data-clustering approach for speeding up model training. Recommender systems attempt to automate the process of "word of mouth" recommendations within a community. Typical application enviro... View full abstract»

    Crawling the Web quickly and entirely is an expensive, unrealistic goal because of the required hardware and network resources. We started with a focused-crawling approach designed by Soumen Chakrabarti, Martin van den Berg, and Byron Dom, and we implemented the underlying philosophy of their approach to derive our baseline crawler. This crawler employs a canonical topic taxonomy to train a naive-... View full abstract»

  • Moving AI out of its infancy: changing our preconceptions

    Explicit symbolic logic has faded from prominence, but the close coupling of AI and the digital computer, and of thought and the stepwise algorithm, seem about as strong and unquestioned as ever. Of course there's connectionism, but this too is mired in false assumptions that date back a long way. And it seems to have dragged neuroscience down with it to the extent that we now seem unable to think... View full abstract»

    It is becoming impossible to contemplate successful bio-medical research without canonical data structures. The biomedical computation community finds itself grappling with hundreds of different knowledge bases, metadata formats, and database schemas. These include primary databases, such as those in GenBank and MEDLINE; metadata that describe the primary data, such as those in caBIO; and knowledg... View full abstract»

    We propose 10 challenges for making automation components into effective "team players" when they interact with people in significant ways. Our analysis is based on some of the principles of human-centered computing that we have developed individually and jointly over the years, and is adapted from a more comprehensive examination of common ground and coordination.
