Web services are an efficient way to implement Multi-agent Systems (MAS) on the Internet and such systems are particularly adequate for developing and deploying cooperative services. MAS are open systems, with agents that can be added, removed or modified at any moment. They can support large scale net applications with no global vision of the situation. In(More)
This research takes place in the S(MA)(2)D project which proposes software architecture to monitor elderly people in their own homes. We want to build patterns dynamically from data about activity, movements, and physiological information of the monitored people. To achieve that, we propose a multiagent method of classification: every agent has a simple(More)
In this paper, the authors propose software architecture to monitor elderly or dependent people in their own house. Many studies have been done on hardware aspects resulting in operational products, but there is a lack of adaptive algorithms to handle all the data generated by these products due to data being distributed and heterogeneous in a large scale(More)
Traditional software development relies on building and assembling pieces of software in order to satisfy explicit requirements. Component-based software engineering simplifies composition and reuse, but software adaptation to the environment remains a challenge. Opportunistic composition is a new approach for building and re-building software in open and(More)
RESUME Dans ce papier nous proposons une approche basée sur un système multi-agents adaptatif, en utilisant les principes de Méta-Interactions Homme-Machine et d'Opportunisme dans le but de résoudre le problème de la Composition d'Interactions Homme-Machine dans les espaces interactifs ambiants. L'idée de cette approche est de voir chaque composant comme un(More)
More and more, multi-agent models are exploited to build complex applications or applications in which no entity has a global vision of the situation. As a result, the Internet is becoming an adequate environment for multi-agent systems. Such systems are open; agents can be added, removed or modified at any moment. But, this characteristic is rarely(More)
We propose an approach based on Adaptive Multi-Agent Systems, using the principles of Meta-User Interfaces and Opportunism in order to solve Human-Computer Interaction Composition in Ambient interactive spaces. The idea of this approach is to see every component as an agent able to interact with other components to compose autonomously in order to(More)
