This paper considers the possibilities offered by the application of techniques from the field of artificial intelligence (AI) to the newer field of web services (WS). Current commercial and research-based efforts are reviewed and positioned within the two fields. Particular attention is given to the application of AI techniques to the important issue of WS(More)
—This work proposes and devises a self-healing hybrid tree/ring-based 10G-EPON architecture that enables the support of a converged PON–4G LTE access networking transport infrastructure to seamlessly backhaul both mobile and wireline business and residential services. The salient feature of the proposed architecture is that it supports a fully distributed(More)
—In this paper, we report our progress on the development of a simulation framework for optical local area networks, which enables a multi-layer network simulation and hence bridges the gap between the traditional signal-level and traffic-level simulators. The framework, called DRAGON (discrete-model register for Artifex-based general-purpose optical local(More)
In this article, we discuss LUCID, a visualization and broadcast system targeted to improving a spectator's ability to understand and make sense of cyber defense competitions. The system aims to engage the spectator by presenting information pertinent to understanding the real-time events of the competition as they unfold. It accomplishes this through a(More)
To support dynamic and reactive behaviour we have developed an Agent Factory which (restructures s an agent configuration using existing components. In this paper we present our current work which uses Web services as the components. Our initial work has focused on configuring Web services to create a design artifact. This is achieved by reasoning about the(More)
