    To coordinate ambulances for emergency medical services, a multiagent system uses an auction mechanism based on trust. Results of tests using real data show that this system can efficiently assign ambulances to patients, thereby reducing transportation time. Emergency transportation on specialized vehicles is needed when a person's health is in risk of irreparable damage. A patient can't benefit f... View full abstract»

    The collaboration of cognitive systems engineers with systems engineers is motivated by the goal of creating human-centered systems. However, there can be a gap in this collaboration. In presentations at professional meetings about cognitive systems engineering projects, we often hear that one or another method of cognitive task analysis was employed in order to inform design. But what software de... View full abstract»

    Cloud computing refers to the use of large-scale computer clusters often built from low-cost hardware and network equipment, where resources are allocated dynamically among users of the cluster. While the paradigm is not entirely novel, recent developments in software frameworks for cloud computing are making it increasingly easy for programmers to parallelize and thereby scale-up complex data-pro...
