Social regulation in virtual spaces

Jack Muramatsu
2003 CHI '03 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '03  
One key feature of social regulation in such virtual spaces is the use and possible use of specialized software routines to regulate specific behaviors.  ...  A multi-year field study of two fantasy-based game MUDs (multi-user dungeons) was conducted to gain a detailed understanding of the work involved in regulating behavior in these virtual environments.  ...  The use of code to regulate users' behavior represents a noteworthy partial shift away from people as the active agents of regulation.  ...

Aspects of the use of geothermal energy as a drying agent (pre-drying) of timber

SETEL Aurel, GORDAN Cornelia, ANTAL Cornel, GORDAN Mircea, VANCEA Cristian
2018 Journal of Electrical and Electronics Engineering  
Because of the fact that wood drying is influenced by heat consumption, it has to be mentioned that this heat has to be transferred from an external source to a drying agent with the help of a thermal  ...  agent.  ...  Agent passing through the heat exchangers is the water from a secondary circuit that accumulates thermal energy from the geothermal water and distributes it to the pre-drying and drying processes.  ...

Cognitively Inspired Decision Making for Software Agents: Integrated Mechanisms for Action Selection, Expectation, Automatization and Non‐Routine Problem Solving

Aregahegn Seifu Negatu
2009 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
In such settings, it is reasonable to assume that the overhearing resources will be essentially limited, thus allowing the overhearing agent to overhear only a subset of inter-agent communications.  ...  The restriction of selectivity is mainly compelled by the specific characteristics of large-scale multi-agent systems.  ...  In most software and agent methodologies, such regulations are seen only as extra requirements in the analysis phase, and are thus hard-coded into the software or agents themselves.  ...

Hirotaka Osawa, Kentaro Ishii, Seiji Yamada, Michita Imai
2011 2011 IEEE 17th International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications  
We consider how social cues restrict user behaviors by referring to a number of psychological, cognitive, and human-robot interaction studies, and we propose a model of restriction based on social cues  ...  Using this model, we created hardware and software in order to realize attachable social cues, and we seek to demonstrate the effect of social cues using the example of home appliances. 17th IEEE International  ...  Human-robot interaction studies have revealed that a human-like virtual agent or robot can regulate user actions and decrease the uncertainty involved in human behaviors.  ...
