Adriana Giret, Vicente Botti
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this work we focus on the A-Agent meta model. To define the A-Agent meta-model we add the gray entities and the bold lines identified in Figure 5 to the agent meta-model of INGENIAS.  ...  In this work we outline the basis for a recursive agent oriented methodology for large-scale MAS. Abstract Task Abstract Belief Fig. 4. Abstract Notations for the A-Agent Model.  ...  A Large-Scale MAS as a Recursive MAS One of the most difficult challenges for automated systems is scalability and adaptation.  ...

Bayesian Hierarchical Models for Meta-Analysis of Quality-of-Life Outcomes: An Application in Multimorbidity

Susanne Schmitz, Tatjana T. Makovski, Roisin Adams, Marjan van den Akker, Saverio Stranges, Maurice P. Zeegers
2019 PharmacoEconomics (Auckland)  
Standard meta-analysis struggles with the variety of outcome measures, which may result in the exclusion of potentially relevant evidence.  ...  Our analysis estimated a reduction in quality of life of 3.8-4.1% per additional condition depending on HRQoL instrument.  ...  Conclusions Our analysis has illustrated the use of three-level hierarchical models in the MA of HRQoL data to allow for the inclusion of a large body of evidence.  ...

IQ: Intrinsic measure for quantifying the heterogeneity in meta-analysis [article]

Ke Yang and Enxuan Lin and Tiejun Tong
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We further propose an optimal estimator, referred to as the IQ statistic, for the new measure of heterogeneity that can be readily applied in meta-analysis.  ...  Moreover, by drawing a connection between ANOVA and meta-analysis, the I^2 statistic is shown to have, mistakenly, applied the sampling errors of the estimators rather than the variances of the study populations  ...  For ease of comparison, we also summarize in Table 1 some key components for the ANOVA model in (4) and for the meta-analysis model in (5).  ...
