Disability questionnaires are increasingly used for clinical assessment, outcome measurement of treatment and research methodology of low back pain. Their use in different countries and cultural groups must follow certain guidelines for translation and cross-cultural adaptation. The translation of such an instrument must be tested for its reliability and(More)
Autonomy, adaptability, scalability, and flexible communications are all attributes of agents and multi-agent systems which suggest that they may offer timely solutions for dealing with the growing complexity of the tasks of traffic control and resource management in telecommunications networks. However, if agent-based solutions to network management(More)
This extended abstract introduces the concept and defines the requirements of time-aware agents, that is, agents capable of reasoning about temporal constraints placed on both agent-agent and human-agent interactions. Using this concept, a real-time architecture for time-aware agents is described and realised through a prototype implementation in the April(More)
Intelligent Networks (IN) are used in telecommunication networks to provide services that require a decision-making network element. The Service Control Point (SCP) can be overloaded when the number of service requests exceeds the SCPs designed capacity. Traditional IN load control algorithms assume a single service network model or use a centralized(More)
This paper describes the specification and implementation of a new three-layer time-aware agent architecture. This architecture is designed for applications and environments where societies of humans and agents play equally active roles, but interact and operate in completely different time frames. The architecture consists of three layers: the April(More)
Intelligent Networks (IN) are used in telecommunication networks to provide services that require a decision-making network element. This element is the Service Control Point (SCP). An overload of an SCP can result in a great reduction in the Quality of Service (QoS) provided by the IN. While traditional IN load control algorithms assume a single service(More)
This paper describes the specification and implementation of the middle layer in a new three-layer time-aware agent architecture. This architecture is designed for applications and environments where societies of humans and agents play equally active roles, but interact and operate in completely different time frames. The middle layer, called the Time-Aware(More)
