Psychological studies on teamwork have shown that an effective team often can anticipate information needs of teammates based on a shared mental model. Existing multi-agent models for teamwork are limited in their ability to support proactive information exchange among teammates. To address this issue, we have developed and implemented a multi-agent(More)
We investigated the role of collagen in the magnetization transfer (MT) effect in contrast to other macromolecules. By means of phantoms made of collagen, chondroitin sulfate (CS) and albumin, MR parameters have been optimized in order to reduce the acquisition time and improve the sensitivity, as well as to minimize the contributions from CS and albumin to(More)
—The process of agent migration is the major difference between logical code mobility of software agents and physical mobility of mobile nodes in ad hoc networks. Without considering agent transfer, it would make little sense to mention the modeling of strong code mobility, which aims to make a migrated agent restarted exactly from the state when it was(More)
This paper presents a knowledge approach to designing team training systems using intelligent agents. We envision a computer-based training system in which teams are trained by putting them through scenarios, which allow them to practice their team skills. There are two important roles that intelligent agents can play; these are virtual team members, and(More)
Training teams is an activity that is expensive, time-consuming, hazardous in some cases, and can be limited by availability of equipment and personnel. In team training, the focus is on optimizing interactions, such as efficiency of communication, conflict resolution and prioritization, group situation awareness, resource distribution and load balancing,(More)
Finding relevant information eeectively on the Internet is a challenging task. Although the information is widely available, exploring Web sites and nding information relevant to a user's interest can be a time-consuming and tedious task. As a result, many software agents have been employed to perform autonomous information gathering and ltering on behalf(More)
This paper investigates teams of agent that cooperate towards achieving common goals. The concept of roles in a team is central to the paper. Agents act and coordinate with other agents depending on their roles. In dynamic environments, an agent may change the roles it plays over time. The coordination between agents is mainly obtained through shared mental(More)
Group A rotavirus (RVA) is one of the leading cause of acute diarrhea worldwide, the RVA-related disease burden and the genotypes of RVA is important reference to introduce RVA variance to national immunisation programmes, 1,121 diarrhea cases and 319 healthy controls were recruited from four sentinel hospital outpatient from July 2014 to June 2015. The(More)
Previously, the prevalence of Salmonella enterica Paratyphi A in Yunnan was high; and recently Yunnan was the predominant endemic province in China. To identify the molecular epidemiology, antibiotic resistance profile and genotypic diversity of the S. Paratyphi A isolates from 1995 to 2013 in Yunnan, we performed the study. Antibiotic susceptibility tests,(More)
