Patterns Reuse in the PASSI Methodology
TLDR
This work describes the experiences in the identification, production and application of patterns for agents, and bases a pattern reuse process that can be considered one of the distinguishing elements of the design methodology (PASSI) the authors use to develop MAS.
Agile PASSI: An agile process for designing agents
TLDR
The Agile version of the PASSI methodology, built by exploiting all the experiences done with conventional PASSI, is supported by specific tools allowing patterns reuse and automatic production of some design documentation.
Conceptual Spaces for Computer Vision Representations
TLDR
A framework for high-level representations in computer vision architectures is described, based on the notion of conceptual space, that allows a conceptual semantics for the symbolic representations of the vision system to be grounded to the data coming from the sensors.
Tools and patterns in designing multi-agent systems with PASSI
TLDR
A comprehensive approach for the development of MAS oriented applications that uses a complete design methodology addressing important issues such as ontology representation, agent collaboration and patterns reuse is proposed.
Understanding dynamic scenes
Reaching and Grasping a Glass of Water by Locked-In ALS Patients through a BCI-Controlled Humanoid Robot
TLDR
Results suggest that BCI-operated robots can be used by locked-in ALS patients as an artificial alter-ego, the machine being able to move, speak and act in his/her place.
Perceptual anchoring via conceptual spaces
Perceptual anchoring is the problem of creating and maintaining in time the connection between symbols and sensor data that refer to the same physical objects. This is one of the facets of the gene
