Agent-based systems have been designed and developed using recent agent technologies. However, design and debugging of these systems is difficult because of agents' situational and nondeterministic behavior, and effective design support technologies have not been proposed. To raise the efficiency of the agent system design process, we propose an interactive(More)
— This paper presents a gentle system for supervising care-support services that fulfill users' actual requirements based on their physical locations and statuses of system components in ubiquitous computing environments. To address issues of traditional supervisory systems based only on location information and the situation of one side of the watching(More)
A microgrid is an eco-friendly power system because renewable sources such as solar and wind power are used as the main power sources. For this reason, much research, development, and demonstration projects have recently taken place in many countries. Operation is one of the important research topics for microgrids. For efficient and economical microgrid(More)
The explosive growth in online information is making it harder for large, globally distributed organizations to foster collaboration and leverage their intellectual assets. Recently, there has been a growing interest in the development of next generation knowledge management systems focussing on the artificial intelligence based technologies. We propose a(More)
AbstrAct In this paper, a concept of " symbiotic computing " is formalized to bridge gaps between Real Space (RS) and Digital Space (DS). Symbiotic computing is a post-ubiquitous computing model based on an agent-oriented computing model that introduces social heuristics and cognitive functions into DS to bridge the gaps. The symbiotic functions and(More)
