Generative Network Automata: A Generalized Framework for Modeling Complex Dynamical Systems with Autonomously Varying Topologies

Hiroki Sayama
2007 2007 IEEE Symposium on Artificial Life  
This paper introduces basic concepts of GNA, its formal definitions, its generality to represent other dynamical systems models, and some preliminary results of an exhaustive sweep of possible dynamics  ...  GNA is formulated as an extension of existing complex dynamical network models to include a new set of generative update rules that determine how local network topologies will change based on the current  ...  The name indicates the integration of knowledge accumulated in dynamical systems theory, network theory, and graph grammar theory.  ...

Self-assembly of modular robots from finite number of modules using graph grammars

Vijeth Rai, Anne van Rossum, Nikolaus Correll
2011 2011 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
We propose a suite of algorithms that (1) generate a reversible graph grammar, i.e., generates rules for a desired structure that allow the structure not only to assemble, but also to disassemble, and  ...  In contrast to self-assembly at the nano and micro scales where abundant building blocks are available, modular robotic systems need to self-assemble from a limited number of modules.  ...  Whereas the Matlab simulations show theoretical proof of our algorithms, it does ignore aspects such as collision avoidance, field of view etc.  ...

Agent-Oriented Language Engineering for Robust NLP [chapter]

Vincenzo Pallotta, Afzal Ballim
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The main goal of our work is to propose an agent-oriented framework for developing robust NLP applications. This framework provides means to compose analysis modules in a co-operative style.  ...  This framework should be general enough to cope with other kinds of information sources, such as multimedia documents and with multimodal dialogue systems.  ...  The importance of adopting an agent-oriented methodology from a linguist point of view lies on the fact that the design of an NLP system able to deal with real language phenomena can be made at knowledge  ...

Chris Elsden, Arthi Manohar, Jo Briggs, Mike Harding, Chris Speed, John Vines
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '18  
In this paper, we construct a typology of emerging blockchain applications, consider the domains in which they are applied, and identify distinguishing features of this new technology.  ...  We argue that there is a unique role for the HCI community in linking the design and application of blockchain technology towards lived experience and the articulation of human values.  ...  How would such a system contend with a 'right to be forgotten'?  ...
