The demand for oil is growing steadily from emerging and developing economies while oil field discoveries continue to decline. Therefore the gap between demand and supply will increase with time. Subsurface Exploration deals with extracting valuable hydrocarbons from oil wells. Due to its hazardous nature, it's one of the most difficult fields to carry(More)
Development of agents as well as their wide usage requires good underlying infrastructure. Literature indicates scarcity of agent development tools in initial years of research which limited the exploitation of this beneficial technology. However, today a wide variety of tools are available, for developing robust infrastructure. This technical note provides(More)
Contract Net Protocol (CNP) is a means to specify problem-solving communication required in a distributed multi-agent environment. Although, FIPA standardized CNP addresses most of the issues with respect to communication happening among agents in a Multi-Agent Environment (MAE), issues related to establishing trust-worthy communication amongst agents is(More)
— Semantic web, also known as next generation web, aims to provide context based information and services to the user.
