These are all examples of weak(More)
This paper provides an overview of the work currently underway at Media Lab Europe to enable an existing, open-source, FIPA-compliant agent platform with the ability to operate in an ad-hoc environment. The motivations for using agents in ad-hoc networks and the requirements this places on an agent platform are discussed. A mechanism for discovering(More)
Bitstream compression is important in reconfigurable system design since it reduces the bit stream size and the memory requirement. It also improves the communication bandwidth and thereby decreases the reconfiguration time in FPGA. Existing research in this field has explored two directions: efficient compression with slow decompression or fast(More)
Not all human–computer interactions are directly derived from the concious intention of a user. There are a class of interactions which occur as a side effect of the user's current goals but which nevertheless, provide a useful modality for interacting with mobile applications. This paper discusses the use of these 'incidental interactions' in mobile(More)
