Healthcare delivery systems around the world are faced with growing demand to provide a better-quality standard of care and at the same time keep the cost and resource utilization minimal. Statistics reveal that diabetes is a major issue in the healthcare industry and there is a strong need to address this problem in order to improve and reduce the cost of(More)
PURPOSE To compare the stride-to-stride fluctuations, regularity and symmetry of gait using a body-fixed accelerometer in a group of healthy young and healthy older adults. METHODS Forty-one healthy young adults (24 ± 3 years) and forty-one healthy older adults (76 ± 5 years) completed a 10-min walk at a self-selected, normal walking speed while wearing a(More)
This work presents a self-aware diabetic patient software agent for representing a human diabetic patient. To develop a 24h, stochastic and self-aware patient agent, we extend the original seminal work of Ackerman et al. [1] in creating a mathematical model of human blood glucose levels in three aspects. (1) We incorporate the stochastic and unpredictable(More)
This paper illustrates the results of a research effort to measure the quality of software agents written in Java using extreme programming. A factoring of quality has been chosen in accordance with the properties and limitations of the type of products and development method considered. The use of the representational theory of measurement gave(More)
This paper reviews recent simulation and modeling applications of residential demand response including demand response enabled load models, home energy management systems, and multi-agent systems. Demand response implementation in residential sectors is a recent effort to improve efficiency of the electricity market and stability of the power system. The(More)
A mobile multi-agent system is proposed to create solutions for the university course timetabling problem. It is composed of four kinds of agents: (mobile) Course Agents, and (stationary) Signboard, Publisher and Interface Agents. The key strength of this new approach is to use a fundamental attribute of Agents that of autonomy. This autonomy is manifested(More)
We propose the method of calculating the cross-correlation between continuous blood glucose and interpolated values of blood glucose samples in order to evaluate blood glucose monitoring frequency in a diabetic-patient software-agent model. The patient software-agent model is a 24-hr circadian, self-aware, stochastic model of a diabetic patient's blood(More)
