Using Grammar Induction to Model Adaptive Behavior of Networks of Collaborative Agents [chapter]

Wico Mulder, Pieter Adriaans
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We introduce a formal paradigm to study global adaptive behavior of organizations of collaborative agents with local learning capabilities.  ...  We discuss some results of these simulations. We believe that this approach provides a viable framework to study processes of self-organization and optimization of collaborative agent networks.  ...  We showed that locally learning agents, when using their grammar models in their decision to forward jobs, contribute to the improvement of the global network performance on processing jobs.  ...

3D Design and Modeling of Smart Cities from a Computer Graphics Perspective

Daniel G. Aliaga
2012 ISRN Computer Graphics  
Research in urban modeling, even from a computer graphics perspective, must tie the two areas of geometric and behavioral modeling together in order to ensure that useful 3D modeling techniques are developed  ...  In particular, we divide research in modeling cities and urban spaces into the areas of geometrical modeling and of behavioral modeling.  ...  The framework includes an interactive agent-based behavioral modeling system as well as adaptive geometry generation algorithms.  ...

Computer Simulation: A New Scientific Approach to the Study of Language Evolution [chapter]

Angelo Cangelosi, Domenico Parisi
2002 Simulating the Evolution of Language  
In a succession of generations the descendants of those non-linguistic ancestors came to possess the ability to speak and to understand the speech of others. What made the transition possible?  ...  These disciplines can indirectly contribute to the study of language origins and evolution. The study of language origins and evolution clearly is an interdisciplinary field  ...  The agent representation methods serve to control the behavior of the agents. These include symbolic rules and neural networks.  ...

Theory building via agent-based modeling in public administration research: vindications and limitations

Taehyon Choi, Shinae Park
2021 International Journal of Public Sector Management  
PurposeThe purpose of this article is to provide an overview of agent-based modeling as an alternative method for public administration research.  ...  relative to agent-based modeling.FindingsAfter reviewing the current research themes in public administration and the methodological nature of agent-based modeling, we found that agent-based modeling  ...  The influence has permeated into a growing number of fields such as organizational learning, adaptation, and innovation, complex networking behaviors, collaboration and institutional design.  ...

CALL theory [chapter]

Mathias Schulze, Kyle Scholz
2016 Language-Learner Computer Interactions  
These processes are not independent of one another but are facets of the same complex adaptive system (CAS).  ...  Recent research in the cognitive sciences has demonstrated that patterns of use strongly affect how language is acquired, is used, and changes.  ...  We have already argued for the need for an agent-based model that allows for variation in exposure history (perhaps by occupying different positions in a social network structure) and the behavior that  ...

We have already argued for the need for an agent-based model that allows for variation in exposure history (perhaps by occupying different positions in a social network structure) and the behavior that  ...  Rather than being an abstract set of rules or structures that are only indirectly related to experience with language, we see grammar as a network built up from the categorized instances of language use  ...

EpiTalk a platform for epiphyte advisor systems dedicated to both individual and collaborative learning [chapter]

Sylvain Giroux, Gilbert Paquette, François Pachet, Jean Girard
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
EpiTalk is a platform enabling to develop advisors for individual and collaborative learning. EpiTalk advisors rely on agents, organizations and hierarchical graphs.  ...  At run-time, agents provide autonomy to each advisor's components, while organizations link and co-ordinate agents.  ...  Each node provides information used to generate and link EAIS agents, to graft the EAIS on the host, and to adapt the EAIS to the host evolution.  ...

Self-organization in sensor networks

Travis C Collier, Charles Taylor
2004 Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing  
Finally, we explore some of the ways this definition applies to wireless sensor networks.  ...  We define a selforganizing system as one where a collection of units coordinate with each other to form a system that adapts to achieve a goal more efficiently.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Lieven Vandenberghe, A. Graham Cairns-Smith, Mike Hamilton of the James Reserve, and the Adaptive Language group at UCLA led by Ed Stabler.  ...
