In this paper, Job shop scheduling problem is solved through multi agent system. An agent based scheduling model is introduced to solve the job shop scheduling problem. Dynamic rescheduling problem is also an important issue in modern manufacturing system with the feature of combinatorial computation complexity. This model improve the job shop scheduling(More)
We are working on the hypothesis that artificial emotions, key for the notion of embodiment for a robot, can be modeled using self-adaptive massive multi-agent systems. We propose a model based on morphology notion to control such massive multi-agent systems. This paper describes the model – focusing on the multi-agent aspect – and a “toy study case” for(More)
METHODS We have evaluated the results of carotid surgery in 252 patients of 75 years and over age (A group) including 281 interventions between June 1st 1985 and December 31st 1993. RESULTS These results have been compared to those obtained in 660 patients of less 75 years (B group), operated on over the same period of time (741 interventions). In the A(More)
BACKGROUND Severe chronic kidney disease is a major limitation for endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). The aim of this study is to assess the safety and accuracy of fusion imaging, when performing EVAR in the absence of pre- and intra-operative contrast agents. METHODS From October 2013 to February 2014, every patient requiring EVAR and presenting(More)
Extended Abstract Decision-making is crucial for an autonomous system. Some work proved that emotions have a link with human decision-making such as Bechara’s work presented in [1] or also Lerner’s work presented in [2]. The goal is to build an adaptative system mirroring the emotional human behavior as suggested and developed by Cardon [3] to make(More)
We are interested in a job-shop scheduling problem corresponding to an industrial problem. Gantt diagram’s optimization can be considered as an NP-difficult problem. Determining an optimal solution is almost impossible, but trying to improve the current solution is a way of leading to a better allocation. The goal is to reduce the delay in an existing(More)
We report the case of a 56-year-old symptomatic woman who underwent 2 coronary bypasses (left internal mammary artery on the left anterior artery and saphenous venous bypass on the circumflex) for a tight stenosis of the left main coronary. An inflammatory syndrome had been explored for 1 year without specific diagnosis. Eight months later, coronary(More)
