    Information and communication technologies offer great potential for society to quickly adopt e-services for economic and social development. Healthcare activities based on these technologies (e-health) are probably the most prominent of these e-services. However, e-health is evolving into such entities as m-health (mobile) or u-health (ubiquitous), which focus on applications that provide healthc... View full abstract»

  • A Canonical Agent Model for Healthcare Applications

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):21 - 28

    Although the utility of autonomous agents and multiagent systems in healthcare applications is now well established, agent technologies themselves remain somewhat immature and, from a theoretical point of view, often ad hoc. We've developed a standard, or canonical, agent model that's intended to be both theoretically well motivated and technically well defined while permitting alternative instant... View full abstract»

  • Increasing Human-Organ Transplant Availability: Argumentation-Based Agent Deliberation

    Human-organ transplantation is the only effective therapy for many life-threatening diseases. However, despite an increase in transplant successes, the lack of a concomitant increase in donor organ availability has led to a growing disparity between supply and demand. Much research has thus focused on defining and implementing policies for increasing donor availability, identifying suitable organ ... View full abstract»

    People are increasingly cooperating to share electronic information and techniques throughout various industries. In healthcare applications, data (a single patient's healthcare history), workflow (procedures carried out on that patient), and logs (a recording of meaningful procedural events) are often distributed among several heterogeneous and autonomous information systems. Understanding a pati... View full abstract»

    Healthcare is information driven and knowledge driven. Good healthcare depends on making decisions at the right time and place, using the right patient data and applicable knowledge. Communication is of utmost relevance in today's healthcare settings, in that delivery of care, research, and management all depend on sharing information. The proposed system can securely gather, integrate, and displa... View full abstract»

    Hospitals are convenient settings for deploying pervasive computing technology, but they also raise important privacy concerns. Hospital work imposes significant demands on staff, including high availability, careful attention to patients, confidentiality, rapid response to emergencies, and constant coordination with colleagues. These demands shape the way hospital workers experience and understan... View full abstract»

  • What's Wrong with Hit Ratio?

    When reporting classifier accuracy, it's common to use hit ratio as a primary metric. However, hit ratio has a serious flaw. We examine the issues surrounding this flaw and explore its magnitude through an empirical experiment on three multivalued classification data sets, using two well-known machine learning models. The results demonstrate a real problem that we can't simply overlook, and we pro... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1541 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Over the last few years, technologies for the formal description, construction, analysis, and validation of software - based mostly on logics and formal reasoning - have matured. We can expect them to complement and partly replace traditional software engineering methods in the future. Formal methods in software engineering are an increasingly important application area for intelligent systems. Th... View full abstract»
