  • The Web - early visions, present reality, the grander future

    Publication Year: 2004
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (193 KB)

    Summary form only given. Features of today's Web environment were advocated and predicted as early as 1945 (Vannevar Bush) followed by McCarthy, J. C. R. Licklider, and Douglas Engelbart. Technology has also been important (the stored program computer itself), time-sharing, CRT displays and now flat panels, the mouse, the Internet, the personal computer (with all its troubles), the Web, and adequa...

  • Applications of intelligent agent technology to the grid

    Publication Year: 2004
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (195 KB)

    Summary form only given. Grids are a distributed computing technology whose objective is to provide the basic mechanisms for forming and operating dynamic distributed collaborations, or virtual organizations as they are sometimes called. While grid infrastructure has focused on such things as the means for discovering and monitoring dynamic services, managing faults and failures, creating and mana... View full abstract»

  • Scaling up multi-agent systems through organizational structuring

    Publication Year: 2004
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (192 KB)

    Summary form only given. Over the last four years, the author has been working on the design of a distributed sensor network for vehicle tracking using adaptive radar sensors. This effort has reignited his long-term interest in the use of organizational structuring for handling scaling issues in multiagent systems. In This work, he first examines how organizational structuring was used in their de... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. Many researchers envision a future of intelligent, personalized agents in their computer workstations. These agents could provide a variety of personalized assistance helping to manage email, schedule meetings, gather and summarize relevant information, track progress of various projects, etc. Perhaps the greatest barrier to creating such intelligent agents is that the dat...

  • Data mining: artificial intelligence in data analysis

    Publication Year: 2004
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (193 KB)

    Summary form only given. Data mining is a fast-growing area. The first Knowledge Discovery in Databases Workshop was held in August 1989, in conjunction with the 1989 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, and this workshop series became the International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) in 1995. In 2003, there were a total of 15 data mining conferences, ... View full abstract»

  • Incentive-compatible social choice

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):8 - 14
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (791 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Many situations present a social choice problem where different self-interested agents have to agree on joint, coordinated decisions. For example, power companies have to agree on how to use the power grid, and airlines have to agree on how to schedule takeoffs and landings. Mechanisms for social choice are called incentive-compatible when cooperative behavior is optimal for all parties. The most ... View full abstract»

  • CHQ: a multi-agent reinforcement learning scheme for partially observable Markov decision processes

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):17 - 30
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (323 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose a reinforcement learning scheme called CHQ that could efficiently acquire appropriate policies under partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDP) involving probabilistic state transitions, that frequently occurs in multiagent systems in which each agent independently takes a probabilistic action based on a partial observation of the underlying environment. A key idea of CHQ is... View full abstract»

  • A novel multiobjective particle swarm optimization for buoys-arrangement design

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):24 - 30
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (289 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper introduces a proposal to extend the particle swarm optimization (PSO) to deal with constrained multiobjective optimization problems. PSO is modified by using the bidirectional searching strategy to guide each particle to search simultaneously in its neighborhood and the region where particles are distributed sparsely. The advantages of the approach are that it is easy to implement and t... View full abstract»

  • Context-centric proactive information delivery

    Delivering only those information relevant to the needs of teammates is critical for avoiding information overload. Need-driven proactive information delivery has thus been widely investigated in diverse areas spanning from psychology, AI, to Web-based services. CAST, a team-oriented agent architecture, realized proactive information delivery as a built-in agent behavior, which is derived by the c... View full abstract»

  • A default extension to distributed description logics

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):38 - 44
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (729 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Description Logic is now an active research area, which is applied universally to knowledge representation, Semantic Web and Ontology language. Compared with Description Logic, Distributed Description Logic can be used to better establish distributed ontologies from distributed information sources. But little attention has been paid to the problem of endowing Distributed Description Logic with def... View full abstract»

    Because of the complexity of the outdoor terrain and the variety of the robot missions, the outdoor autonomous intelligent robot (OAIR) has to carry out missions in unstructured and impossibly predicted environment, which brings forward the higher challenge for the simulation environment. So the interactive simulation idea is introduced in This work. By means of classification, the outdoor simulat... View full abstract»

    We describe how a system employing different types of organizational techniques addresses the challenges posed by a large-scale distributed sensor network environment. The high-level multiagent architecture of real-world system is given in detail, and empirical and analytic results are provided showing the various effects that organizational characteristics have on the system's performance. We sho... View full abstract»
