Using Reinforcement Learning for Autonomic Resource Allocation in Clouds: towards a fully automated workflow
TLDR
In this paper, we propose to deal with theseproblems using appropriate initialization for the early stages aswell as convergence speedups applied throughout the learningphases and we present experimental results for these. Expand

From Data Center Resource Allocation to Control Theory and Back
TLDR
In this paper, considering our recent work to build a management framework dedicated to automatic resource allocation in virtualized applications, we attempt to identify from experiments the sources of instabilities in the controlled systems. Expand

Prototype-Based Languages: From a New Taxonomy to Constructive Proposals and Their Validation
TLDR
In this paper, we propose a new taxonomy of prototype based languages, enhancing the Treaty of Orlando by now discussing issues associated with the different semantics of the identified prototype-based languages. Expand

Plan-based replication for fault-tolerant multi-agent systems
TLDR
The growing importance of multi-agent applications and the need for a higher quality of service in these systems justify the increasing interest in fault-tolerant multi- agent systems through replication. Expand

QoS-based Late-Binding of Service Invocations in Adaptive Business Processes
TLDR
A new programming abstraction, QoS-based late-binding of service invocations, has been proposed to provide for more agility to business process execution. Expand

A Predictive Method for Providing Fault Tolerance in Multi-agent Systems
TLDR
The growing importance of multi-agent applications and the need for a higher quality of service in these systems justify the increasing interest in fault-tolerant multi- agent systems through replication. Expand

Predictive fault tolerance in multiagent systems: a plan-based replication approach
TLDR
The fact that multiagent applications are prone to the same faults that any distributed system is susceptible to and the need for a higher quality of service in these systems justify the increasing interest in fault-tolerant multiagent systems. Expand
