Culture plays a significant role in human civilizations as a key determinant of relationships and organization formation, however, its role, key properties, and mechanisms are not yet fully understood. This work explores culture and cultural modelling from a complex systems, multi-dimensional, and multi-agency standpoint. The need for performing such(More)
``Autonomic systems'' merge advancements in the field of multi-agent software design, dynamic analysis, and decentralized control in order to assist designers in constructing complex distributed systems. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) represent such systems, and may benefit from autonomic system designs that target distributed nodes in diverse and changing(More)
We introduce a novel way to model and visualize culture in multi-agent organizations exploring the multi-dimensionality of culture and cultural modelling from a complex systems and multi-agent systems standpoint. The need for performing such modelling and simulation is evident since in-vivo organizational experiments are costly, not easily generalizable,(More)
Human factor models are important for computer systems to i) make such systems more human aware (ie. better calculations of human behavior) and ii) make such systems demonstrate more realistic human behaviors (ie. display more human-like AI). Having these capabilities is beneficial in that they allow for technologies that are better aligned with the human(More)
Geographic information systems are becoming more important in decision and analysis processes. It is useful to retrieve all GIS data sets that are related to a given geographic theme. At present there are no known methods for implicitly linking data sets so that all related sets are returned for a given spatial query. A new method is being developed that(More)
