Towards nature-inspired pervasive service ecosystems: Concepts and simulation experiences

Cynthia Villalba, Franco Zambonelli
2011 Journal of Network and Computer Applications  
A conceptual architecture is introduced to frame the key concepts of nature-inspired approaches and to survey the key natural metaphors that can be adopted to realize the concept of pervasive service ecosystems  ...  This paper discusses how such frameworks could get inspiration from natural systems, by modeling and deploying services as autonomous agents, spatially situated in an ecosystem of other services, data  ...  To reach this goal, we should no longer conceive services and their interactions as in usual service-oriented architectures (Huhns and Singh, 2005) , where services are simply functional entities orchestrated  ...
