This paper discusses an efficient solution to such processing challenges, which is based on the recently introduced Dynamic Process Integration Framework (DPIF), a service(More)
We describe several principles for designing Actor-Agent Communities (AAC) as collectives of autonomous problem solving entities (software agents and human experts) that self-organize and collaborate at solving complex problems. One of the main distinctive aspects of the AAC is their ability to integrate in a meaningful way the expertise and reasoning of(More)
