An intelligent, motivated African American girl from Chicago's South Side could follow her star-athlete brother to Princeton and move on to graduate cum laude from Harvard Law School.  ...  Similar formal procedures dictated sanctions, yet inmates reported inconsistencies across guards.  ...  Using meta-analytic techniques, we found an overall modest but statistically significant impact of POP on crime and disorder. We also report on our analysis of pre/post comparison studies.  ...

Q: a scenario description language for interactive agents

T. Ishida
2002 Computer  
We introduce sensing and acting functions and guarded commands in Scheme. Since Scheme is Q's mother language, all Scheme functions and forms can be used in any Q scenario.  ...  Scenario writers use cues to request that agents observe their environment. No cue can have any side effect. Cues keep on waiting for the specified event until the observation successfully completes.  ...  In the metalayer, agents can request the Q analyzer to investigate the scenario. Based on the report from the Q analyzer, the agents can enter into negotiations with the scenario writers.  ...

Towards an Agent-Based Infrastructure to Support Virtual Organisations [chapter]

Virginia Dignum, Frank Dignum
2002 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
In this paper, we present a framework for the support of virtual organisations based on agent societies.  ...  Institutions are used to implement and monitor the conventions, norms and goals of the virtual organisation.  ...  In this view the behaviour of multi-agent system is seen from the perspective of the agent itself, in terms of how an agent can affect the environment or be affected by it.  ...
