We discuss1 which properties common-use artifacts should have to collaborate without human intervention. We conceive how devices, such as mobile phones, PDAs, and home appliances, could be seamlessly integrated to provide an “ambient intelligence” that responds to the user’s desires without requiring explicit programming or commands. While the hardware and software technology to build such systems already exists, as yet there is no standard protocol that can learn new meanings. We propose the… Expand
Self-organization of complex , intelligent systems : an action ontology for transdisciplinary integration
this paper reviews the general philosophy underlying the transdisciplinary research in the Evolution, Complexity and Cognition (ECCO) group. The ECCO conceptual framework is based on an ontology ofExpand
The Emergence of Distributed Cognition : a conceptual framework
We propose a first step in the development of an integrated theory of the emergence of distributed cognition/extended mind. Distributed cognition is seen as the confluence of collective intelligenceExpand
Design and Control of Self-organizing Systems
TLDR
A methodology to aid engineers in the design and control of complex systems based on the description of systems as self-organizing, which claims that reducing the “friction” of interactions between elements of a system will result in a higher "satisfaction" of the system, i.e. better performance.

Talking Nets : exploring a multi-agent , connectionist model of distributed communication and cognition
This research project is proposed by a multidisciplinary team led by F. Heylighen and F. Van Overwalle. Its members have expertise in cognitive science, psychology, AI, philosophy, economics,Expand
The GBI Vision : past , present and future context of global brain research
The following provides background and context for the creation of a “Global Brain Institute” (GBI), summarizing the scientific theories and research that will form the focus of this new institute.Expand
Complex Adaptive Systems & Urban Morphogenesis : Analyzing and designing urban fabric informed by CAS dynamics
TLDR
The main thrust of the work is to unpack how elements of the urban fabric might be considered as elements of a complex system and then identify how one might design these elements in a more deliberate manner, such that they hold a greater embedded capacity to respond to changing urban forces.

Interacting urns processes: for clustering of large-scale networks of tiny artifacts
TLDR
A distributed variation on the Pólya urn process in which a network of tiny artifacts manages the individual urns is analyzed, finding that the process rapidly converges to a definitive random ratio between the colors in every urn and that the rate of convergence of the process at a given node depends on the global topology of the network.

Wireless sensing without sensors — An experimental approach
TLDR
A novel approach to intrusion detection is offered by turning a constraint in WSN, namely radio irregularity, into an advantage for the purpose of intrusion detection by enabling existing wireless infrastructures to serve as intrusion detectors instead of deploying numerous costly sensors. Expand

Preface The IST Advisory Group (ISTAG) has made consistent efforts to get a higher level of focus and a higher pace of development in Europe on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). ToExpand
Evolving social rationality for MAS using "tags"
TLDR
Initial results indicate that the harnessing of such a process in MAS may be a viable alternative to the engineering of specific cooperation mechanisms and group structures. Expand
Collective Intelligence and its Implementation on the Web: Algorithms to Develop a Collective Mental Map
TLDR
The creation of a network of pheromone trails by ant colonies points to some basic mechanisms of CMM development: averaging of individual preferences, amplification of weak links by positive feedback, and integration of specialised subnetworks through division of labor. Expand
Negotiating the Semantics of Agent Communication Languages
TLDR
The semantic space framework provides a systematic means of classifying the primitives along multiple relevant dimensions and can be used by the agents to structure their negotiation process so that they converge to the mutually agreeable semantics that are necessary for coherent social interactions. Expand
The Meaning of Self-organization in Computing
TLDR
The complexity bottleneck not only creates stress and confusion, it severely limit the speed of further progress, and large projects, such as the Semantic Web, either will getendlessly delayed, or end up with unworkable products. Expand
Negotiation protocols and dialogue games
TLDR
This work proposes a way to construct exible negotiation protocols, based on dialogue games, originally developed for the description of human dialogue, that can be constructed coherently in multi-agent activities. Expand
When Can We Call a System Self-Organizing?
TLDR
It is shown how, changing the level or “graining” of description, the same system can appear self-organizing or self-disorganizing, and concludes thatSelf-organization is a way of observing systems, not an absolute class of systems. Expand

The collective stance in modeling expertise in individuals and organizations
TLDR
It is argued for the adoption of a collective stance in which the human species is viewed as a single organism recursively partitioned in space and time into sub-organisms that are similar to the whole. Expand
Evolution of cooperation without reciprocity
TLDR
Computer simulations are used to show that cooperation can arise when agents donate to others who are sufficiently similar to themselves in some arbitrary characteristic, or ‘tag’, which can be a marking, display, or other observable trait. Expand
