Mobile Agents: Basic Concepts, Mobility Models, and the by Peter Braun

By Peter Braun

Cellular brokers are software program nomads that act as your own consultant, operating autonomously via networks. they can stopover at community nodes without delay utilizing on hand computing strength and aren't constrained through platform. This rising box is now poised to turn into a cornerstone for brand new Web-based ubiquitous computing environments. cellular brokers offers a pragmatic advent to cellular agent expertise and surveys the state-of-the-art in cellular agent learn. scholars and researchers can use the publication as an advent to the ideas and probabilities of this box and as an outline of ongoing learn. builders can use it to spot the functions of the know-how to choose if cellular brokers are definitely the right resolution for them. Practioners may also achieve hands-on event in programming cellular brokers via exploration of the resource code for a whole cellular agent atmosphere to be had in the course of the significant other web site. *Summarizes the state-of-the-art in cellular agent research*Identifies the advantages and obstacles of present cellular agent expertise to assist builders comprehend the probabilities of this new field*Extensive cellular brokers internet portal (www.mobile-agents.org) with the Java resource code for an entire industrial-quality atmosphere for cellular brokers, with major components of the method open resource

Artificial Intelligence in Education: Building Technology Rich Learning Contexts that Work

The character of expertise has replaced on account that synthetic Intelligence in schooling (AIED) was once conceptualised as a examine neighborhood and Interactive studying Environments have been in the beginning constructed. expertise is smaller, extra cellular, networked, pervasive and sometimes ubiquitous in addition to being supplied via the traditional machine workstation.

Towards a Unified Modeling and Knowledge-Representation based on Lattice Theory: Computational Intelligence and Soft Computing Applications

By way of ‘model’ we suggest a mathematical description of an international point. With the proliferation of pcs numerous modeling paradigms emerged less than computational intelligence and tender computing. An advancing expertise is presently fragmented due, besides, to the necessity to take care of forms of facts in several program domain names.

Example text

Only mobile agents, with their inherent capability for traveling the network and their fully distributed paradigm, provide a conceptually sound basis for this application domain. They do shopping as we like to do it, by visiting the stores, comparing the different offers, and, finally, finishing the acquisition. This also includes the capability to spot a new store and to include it into the acquisition process. Mobility is the key issue. , increased network load and latency, as well as many unnecessary downloads) and cannot deal with the characteristics of the domain that are distributed and dynamic in nature.

The additional property of mobility can be seen as a very straightforward extension, at least from a human point of view, as it goes well with our natural understanding of how to search for information in a distributed environment. 2 The Distributed Systems Point of View In contrast to the more end-user–oriented definition for mobile agents given in the last section, in which mobility was just a nice-to-have feature, we start here with a definition that draws more attention on the technical aspects of agent mobility.

The authors provide a good overview of the various areas of agent research, and they already mention the concept of mobile agents. We can now try to add mobility to our definitions of software agents: Mobile software agents are computer programs that act as representatives in the global network of computer systems. The agent knows its owner, knows his or her preferences, and learns by communicating with its owner. The user can delegate tasks to the agent, which is able to search the network efficiently by moving to the service or information provider.
