Nowadays there is a clear trend towards using methods and tools that can develop multi-agent systems (MAS) capable of reorganization and adapting to changes within their environment. To that end, this article intends to identify and analyze the research topics that deal with the development of open MAS based on virtual organizations. Additionally, a case(More)
Nowadays, cloud computing is revolutionizing the services provided through the Internet to adapt itself in order to keep the quality of its services. Recent research foresees the advent of a new discipline of agent-based cloud computing systems that can make decisions about adaption in an uncertain environment. This paper discusses the role of argumentation(More)
This paper presents the BRENHET application, which introduces a new concept in searching for educational resources by using a learning object paradigm that describes these resources. The application is composed of a complete agent-based architecture that implements the concept of federated search. It can search different repositories in parallel, and is(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks comprise an ideal technology to develop Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLSs) aimed at indoor environments, where existing global navigation satellite systems do not work correctly due to the blockage of the satellite signals. In this regard, one of the main challenges is to deal with the problems that arise from the effects of the(More)
Cloud Computing presents a new approach to allow the development of dynamic, distributed and highly scalable software. For this purpose, Cloud Computing offers services, software and computing infrastructure independently through the network. To achieve a system that supports these characteristics, Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and agent frameworks(More)
The main objective of Cloud Computing is to provide software, services and computing infrastructures carried out independently by the network. This concept is based on the development of dynamic, distributed and scalable software. In this way there are Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and agent frameworks which provide tools for developing distributed(More)
Nowadays, circa 10% of 7-11 olds turn out to be poor comprehenders: they demonstrate text comprehension difficulties, related to inference making, despite proficiency in low-level cognitive skills like word reading. To improve the reading comprehension of these children, TERENCE, a technology enhanced learning project, aims at stimulating inference-making(More)
Information fusion in a context-aware system is understood as a process that assembles assessments of the environment based on its goals. Advantages of intelligent approaches such as Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) and the use of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) within the information fusion process are emerging, especially in context-aware scenarios. However, it(More)
