Problem formalization techniques for collaborative systems
The division of intellectual labor required to solve complex problems demands that those problems be decomposed and distributed among available "laborers." One well-developed notion in shared problemExpand

Problem characteristics for task sharing in collaborative systems
Problem modeling, decomposition, and distribution techniques are used to implicate both the types of problems best suited to collaboration and requisite problem-solving system capabilities. It isExpand

A reference architecture for distributed intelligent systems and a preliminary description language for their integration
Artificial intelligence and information systems research is just beginning to grapple with the problems of integrating autonomous, intelligent machine and human agents into complex problem-solvingExpand
