A next generation distributed system is expected to adapt to various changes of both the users' requirements and the operational conditions of environment where the distributed system operates. The aim of our research is to establish a new design model of an adaptive distributed system (ADS) to deal with various changes occurred in the system environment.(More)
In this paper, a concept of "symbiotic computing" is formalized to bridge an e-Gap between real space (RS) and digital space (DS). The symbiotic computing is a post ubiquitous computing model based on an agent-oriented computing model to bring in social heuristics and cognitive functions into DS to bridge the e-Gap. The symbiotic computing provides a(More)
We have been working on research and development of advanced network and applications called "flexible computing". We are now in the next stage of this research, strongly pressing forward the concept of flexible computing, namely, "symbiotic computing", towards next generation computing model based on co-existence of real space and digital space. In this(More)
In this paper, we first present an analysis of a multi-language application from a cross-cultural point of view. Then we analyze the specific activities of a multilingual collaborative design and the automatic translation system that it requires. We also propose an architecture of a design support system producing the UML design of applications and allowing(More)
Ubiquitous computing is very expected to improve safety and offer more services in Japan. This involves managing large amounts of personal data, which is currently done by private companies. The paper describes how to use these data to watch children to keep safety on road to go to school. We use an agent-based recognition of relations among people using(More)
In symbiotic computing approach, digital world and humans interact with each other, based on ``basic principle of symbiosis'', where they increase information processing ability, activity, and stability by offering informations and support each other. We try to build a cognitive agent that implements a dynamic ontology which aims at representing what user(More)
