Coordination is essential to the effective operation of multi-agent systems. Convention emergence offers a low-cost and decentralised method of ensuring compatible actions and behaviour , without requiring the imposition of rules dictating such. In this paper, we explore the emergence of conventions within a dynamic network, and examine the effectiveness of(More)
It is known that well over 50% of replacement projects fail. Requirements gathering go someway to contributing to this statistic; if the requirements we gather for the new system do not match those of the system to be replaced then the project is bound to fail, at least in part. This paper proposes an empirical metric that assists measuring the confidence(More)
Climate change challenges the capacity of fishes to thrive in their habitat. However, through phenotypic diversity, they demonstrate remarkable resilience to deteriorating conditions. In fish populations, inter-individual variation in a number of fitness-determining physiological traits, including cardiac performance, is classically observed. Information(More)
