1959 Administrative Science Quarterly  
For our purposes leadership can be defined as the process by which an agent induces a subordinate to behave in a desired man- ner.  ...  The process by which an agent induces depends upon the agent’s ability to control the appropriate means to satisfy the needs of subordinates.*® Induction, then depends upon two elements, the types of rewards  ... 

An agent-based model of the emergence and evolution of a language system for boolean coordination

Josefina Sierra-Santibáñez
2018 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
This paper presents an agent-based model for studying the emergence and evolution of a language system Boolean coordination.  ...  The model has been implemented and tested by conducting a series of experiments that show that a language system for Boolean coordination emerges as a result of a process of self-organisation of the agents  ...  CONCEPTUAL SYSTEM The formalism the agents use to build internal representations of the subsets of objects they try to communicate about is the simply typed λ-calculus [9] , and specifically higher-order  ...

Ontology engineering and (digital) business ecosystems: A case for a pragmatic web

Peter Spyns, Robert Meersman
2007 2007 IEEE Conference on Emerging Technologies & Factory Automation (EFTA 2007)  
In this paper, we present an ontology engineering methodology that addresses these issues. And we advocate the idea of "Pragmatic Webs", as a way of enabling Digital Business Ecosystems.  ...  In computer science, the metaphor of a 'swarm' has been introduced. Any successful (human or artificial) agent interaction requires interoperability and meaning agreement next to trust and privacy.  ...  Web services and intelligent agents can now interact with one another in order to fulfil the task (or business function) as defined in their internal logic (e.g. business rules represented as decision  ...

Robust and emergent Physarum logical-computing

Soichiro Tsuda, Masashi Aono, Yukio-Pegio Gunji
2004 Biosystems (Amsterdam. Print)  
A Physarum (slime mold) Boolean gate could be an internally instable machine, while it has the potential for emergent computing.  ...  The behavior of Physarum changes and self-repairing computing is achieved as a result. The self-repairing against internal failure is one of attributes of emergent and robust computing.  ...  An element of a lattice is represented by a formal concept. and then it is a formal concept.  ...

A Framework for Modeling and Analysis of Ambient Agent Systems: Application to an Emergency Case [chapter]

Tibor Bosse, Alexei Sharpanskykh
2010 Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing  
In this paper a formal framework is proposed for declarative modeling of cognitive processes and behavior of agents in an ambient intelligence system.  ...  However, modeling complex cognitive dynamics from which intelligent behavior of agents emerges is not trivial.  ...  From the internal perspective the behavior of an agent is characterized by causal relations between internal states of the agent, based on which externally observable behavioral patterns are generated.  ...

From Organisational Structure to Organisational Behaviour Formalisation [article]

ViewpointS: Towards a Collective Brain [chapter]

Philippe Lemoisson, Stefano A. Cerri
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We are therefore challenging each of the current approaches: the logical one in the semantic Web, the statistical one in mining and deep learning, the social one in recommender systems based on authority  ...  By exploiting the similarity with Edelman's Theory of Neuronal Group Selection (TNGS), we conjecture that it may be metaphorically considered a Collective Brain, especially effective in the case of trans-disciplinary  ...  Searle explains how the interpretation of repeated collective experiences by individuals bears the emergence of an institutional reality founded on the use of language.  ...

Formal Executable Models of Cell Signaling Primitives

Carolyn Talcott
2006 Second International Symposium on Leveraging Applications of Formal Methods, Verification and Validation (isola 2006)  
Effects of these complex formations include recruiting an agent to a new location, sequestering an agent (hiding it), and enabling specific functionality (for example by exposing active sites).  ...  The Rewriting logic [14] formalism is based on two simple ideas: states of a system are represented as elements of an algebraic data type; and the behavior of a system is given by local transitions between  ...
