Agent technology has the potential to play a key role in building and supporting virtual enterprises. To host and enable agents as well as agent functions an open infrastructure is needed. Beside standards, such an infrastructure has to be generic and deployment independent to deal with the heterogeneity of the computing and information technology world, e.g. supporting devices ranging from mobile phones, PDAs, Laptops up to personal computers and workstations as well as different kinds of… Expand

Beyond Prototyping in the Factory of Agents
TLDR
The key attributes of Agent Factory, a cohesive framework supporting a structured approach to the development and deployment of agent-oriented applications, are detailed, namely: visual design, design reuse, behaviour enactment, migration, and ubiquity. Expand
The Bio-Networking Architecture : Its Architectural Design and Platform Implementation
Future networks will connect heterogeneous objects and services, and be much larger and more complex than the current networks. We believe that making this future a reality requires a network thatExpand
Verifying space and time requirements for resource-bounded agents
TLDR
A novel procedure for automatically verifying the space and time requirements for resource-bounded reasoning agents as a finite state machines in which the states correspond the formulas currently held in an agent's memory and the transitions between states correspond to applying the agent's inference rules. Expand
Model-checking space and time requirements for resource-bounded agents
The effective reasoningcapability of an agent can be defined as its capability to infer, within a given space and time bound, facts that are logical consequences of its knowledge base. In this paperExpand
Automated Component-Based Configuration: Promises and Fallacies
Re-use of software components is standard practice in software design and development in which humans play an important role. In many dynamic environments, however, (semi-)automated configuration ofExpand

Foundations of distributed artificial intelligence
TLDR
This paper presents a meta-modelling architecture for distributed artificial intelligence that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of designing and implementing distributed systems. Expand
