Blackboard Systems
Blackboard systems are not new technology. The first blackboard system, the Hearsay-II speech understanding system [1], was developed nearly twenty years ago. While the basic features of Hearsay-IIExpand

Coherent Cooperation Among Communicating Problem Solvers
TLDR
We describe three mechanisms that improve network coherence in a distributed problem-solving network where agents cooperate to solve a single problem where each agent has only a limited view of the overall task. Expand

Detecting insider threats in a real corporate database of computer usage activity
TLDR
We have developed and applied multiple algorithms for anomaly detection based on suspected scenarios of malicious insider behavior, indicators of unusual activities, high-dimensional statistical patterns, temporal sequences, and normal graph evolution. Expand

The Use of Meta-Level Control for Coordination in a Distributed Problem Solving Network
TLDR
We describe a decentralized approach to network coordination that relies on each node making sophisticated local decisions that balance its own perceptions of appropriate problem solving activity with activities deemed important by other nodes. Expand
