Paulo André L. De Castro, Jaime S. Sichman
2009 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
The communication among agents is performed through FIPA ACL and uses a market ontology created specifically to be used for trader agents.  ...  Many researchers in the software agent field use the financial domain as a test bed to develop adaptation, cooperation and learning skills of software agents.  ...  In order to make easier the launcher of an agent society, AgEx provides a launcher that allows the definition of a society through XML files including parameters for traders (initial capital and traded  ...

Towards a model for urban mobility social simulation

Francisco Grimaldo, Miguel Lozano, Fernando Barber, Alejandro Guerra-Hernández

Simulating Computational Societies [chapter]

Lloyd Kamara, Alexander Artikis, Brendan Neville, Jeremy Pitt
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We discuss the implications for agent development and agent society design arising from the results and analysis of our simulation approach.  ...  Another is that of an instantiated agent architecture and its interaction with its peers in a MAS. A third perspective is that of an external observer.  ...  We have also benefitted from Marek Sergot's contributions on the specification of agent societies and on the development of the Society Visualiser (Section 4).  ...

An agent-based trust and reputation management scheme for wireless sensor networks

A. Boukerche, Xu Li
2005 GLOBECOM '05. IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference, 2005.  
In this paper, taking into consideration the power and bandwidth constraints of WSNs, we propose a novel Agent-based Trust and Reputation Management scheme (ATRM) from a system design point of view.  ...  Our objective is to manage trust and reputation with minimal overhead in terms of extra messages and time delay.  ...  We are going to introduce these four components in this section. • Agent Launcher (AL): An AL is an always-existing and presumably-trusted authority responsible for generating and launching TRAs into the  ...

A computational Grid framework for immunological applications

M. D. Halling-Brown, D. S. Moss, C. E. Sansom, A. J. Shepherd
2009 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences  
We took 40 000 polypeptide sequences from 4000 avian and mammalian influenza strains and used a neural network for class I T-cell epitope prediction tools for 120 class I alleles and haplotypes to generate  ...  By making extensive use of existing Grid middleware, our Grid has enabled us to exploit consortium and publicly available computers in a unified way, notwithstanding the diverse local software and administrative  ...  The authentication step from the job launcher to the VUI is made by Secure Shell without password using public key authentication with an agent.  ...

Software Dysfunction: Why Do Software Fail?

Edward E. Ogheneovo
2014 Journal of Computer and Communications  
Software is pervasive in modern society, but we are often unaware of its presence until problems arise.  ...  As programs grew in size and complexity, the limits of this "code and fix" approach became evident. In this paper, we studied the various reasons why software fails.  ...  And as society comes to rely on IT systems that are ever larger, more integrated, and more expensive, the costs of failure may become disastrously high.  ...
