Auspice: Automatic Service Planning in Cloud/Grid Environments [chapter]

David Chiu, Gagan Agrawal
2011 Grids, Clouds and Virtualization  
These processes and data sets are often semantically loosely-coupled and must be composed together piecemeal to generate scientific workflows.  ...  Our system, Auspice: AUtomatic Service Planning In Cloud/Grid Environments, consists of the following key contributions. Initially, a two-level metadata management framework is introduced.  ...  Here, workflows are composed via a rule-based system, and correctness is kept through backwards reasoning.  ...

Logic-based technologies for multi-agent systems: a systematic literature review

Roberta Calegari, Giovanni Ciatto, Viviana Mascardi, Andrea Omicini
2020 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
Goals in 2APL are logical formulae that the agents exploit in the execution of a plan, via logical entailment.  ...  However, none of them can be considered actually ready to match the needs of real-world application domains. This is why this research line appears promising and deserves further attention.  ...
