Generating animation content can be tedious and result in “messed-up” code. We present a Java API that can be used for generating AnimalScript-based animations. It was designed to be extendable to other output formats, such as SVG or other scripting languages. Apart from describing the use of the API, we also show a concrete example that was generated using(More)
Space operations involve the control of complex technical equipment in highly dynamic and unknown environments. This is a challenging task for human operators. To facilitate this task, mission-critical software systems need to be able to truly engage in joint activities with their human operators; i.e. these systems need to be designed for interdependence(More)
According to Clark’s seminal work on common ground and grounding, participants collaborating in a joint activity rely on their shared information, known as common ground, to perform that activity successfully, and continually align and augment this information during their collaboration. Similarly, teams of human and artificial agents require common ground(More)
Computational models of the transmission of cultural information usually neglect that cultural transmission between individuals occurs mainly as a consequence of complex social interactions. We analyze the requirements for a computational model of a social psychological theory of cultural transmission, a theory which postulates that actors in a joint(More)
Program teaches management skills beyond those taught in pharmacy school. Pharmacists benefit not only from educational growth but also from networking opportunities. Alumni report that the program has had a positive impact on their personal and career objectives, their department, and their organization. Involvement of administrators helps pharmacy(More)
Within service-oriented architectures, components need to discover and interact with suitable services, which in turn can be mapped to particular subtasks. Similarly, in online social communities users may wish to discover information related to a particular interest that matches their personal preferences. These tasks are difficult when the number of(More)
