We applied mobile computing to community support and explored mobile computing with a large number of terminals. This article reports on the Second International Conference on Multiagent Systems (ICMAS'96) Mobile Assistant Project that was conducted at an actual international conference for multiagent systems using 100 personal digital assistants (PDAs) and(More)
We discuss the requirements for community information sharing. We then propose the weak information structures to integrate heterogeneous information such as static information (e.g. local sites information) and dynamic information created in word-of-mouth communication. The weak information structures connect various information media without dening the(More)
AIM Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is associated with autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD). The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) has been extensively studied in these diseases. We aimed to clarify the contribution of AITD on the susceptibility and resistance of the HLA subtype to autoimmune T1D in the Japanese population. METHODS The frequency of the HLA DR-DQ haplotype(More)
In this paper, we present a new approach based on knowledge medium using associative representation as a framework of information representation to gather raw information from vast information sources and to integrate it into information bases cost-eectively. We then present a knowledge media information base system called CM-2 which provides users with a(More)
This paper describes information sharing in a community using associative representation. The as-sociative representation links heterogeneous information without dening the semantics strictly. We leave the interpretation of the semantics to human tacit knowledge. We have developed a system called CoMeMo-Community which gathers community members' information(More)
