This article describes a new approach of HTML pages search via Internet, which is based on the semantic understanding of pages content by means of multi-agent technology. Multi-agent text understanding system, which is the basis of the approach, converts an input query and pages, received from conventional search engines, to formalized semantic descriptors,(More)
The application of multi-agent platform for real-time adaptive scheduling of trucks is considered. In case of unpredictable events the system works adaptively and doesn’t stop to restart the plan from the beginning. Different models of cargo transportation for truck companies having own fleet are analysed. The results show that using adaptive scheduling in(More)
The paper gives an overview of a multi-agent real-time scheduling solution for taxi companies. It covers problem definition, describes a multi-agent approach to real-time scheduling, outlines the system architecture and gives performance matrices. Key design decisions are also discussed. The most important achievements are the ability of the system to(More)
We introduce MAGENTA'S commercial multi-agent systems technology, and illustrate its practical use by describing a field-tested application in the area of logistics/scheduling. MAGENTA technology provides two integrated toolsets for building industrial-strength systems: the <i>Ontology Management Toolkit</i> (which enables designers to capture the concepts(More)
The paper describes main features of an Intelligent Scheduler for Road Transportation Applications based on Magenta agent technology and characterized by a number of unique, advanced features such as real-time, incremental, continuous scheduling and schedule improvement, scalability from small to very large enterprise networks, multi-criteria schedule(More)
The paper describes functionality of Magenta Multi-Agent Logistics i-Scheduler Engine presented on AAMAS 2006 conferences and gives examples of its application in business domain. The i-Scheduler Engine was designed to be scalable without risk of combinatorial explosion, in order to handle large transportation networks as a whole. The multi-agent(More)
This paper discusses the methodology for the development of a strategic planning tool, and particularly the architectural solution to be adopted, within an integrated ICT solution for the improvement of planning and scheduling systems for the manufacturing of small production lots of complex products. After the analysis of different possible architectural(More)
We consider the logistic issues for The London Underground (LU), which spans the entire city, and is a vast network of inter-related railway lines. By its very nature, it is a dynamic, complex and unpredictable environment; operating or being maintained 24 hours-a-day. This paper reports on an investigation in to how a Multi-Agent System (MAS) may be used(More)
