A primary motivation this research in digital ecosystems is the desire to exploit the self-organising properties of biological ecosystems. Ecosystems are thought to be robust, scalable architectures that can automatically solve complex and dynamic problems. However, the computing technologies that contribute to these properties have not been made explicit in digital ecosystems research. In this paper, the authors discuss how different computing technologies can contribute to providing the… Expand
Digital Ecosystems
TLDR
The Digital Ecosystem is created, a novel optimisation technique inspired by biological ecosystems, where the optimisation works at two levels: a first optimisation, migration of agents which are distributed in a decentralised peer-to-peer network, operating continuously in time; this process feeds a second optimisation based on evolutionary computing that operates locally on single peers and is aimed at finding solutions to satisfy locally relevant constraints.

Self-organisation of evolving agent populations in Digital Ecosystems
TLDR
The self-organising behaviour of Digital Ecosystems is investigated and a definition for the diversity is investigated, relative to the selection pressures provided by the user requests, based upon convergence to an equilibrium distribution. Expand

Computing of applied digital ecosystems
TLDR
How different computing technologies can contribute to providing the necessary self-organising features, including Multi-Agent Systems (MASs), Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs), and distributed evolutionary computing (DEC) are discussed. Expand
Biology of Applied Digital Ecosystems
TLDR
Simulation results imply that the DBE performs better at large scales than a comparable service-oriented architecture, and suggest that incorporating ideas from theoretical ecology can contribute to useful self-organising properties in digital ecosystems. Expand

The ABC of Digital Business Ecosystems
TLDR
Open Source Software is adopted in the DBE/OPAALS projects as the best support for sustainability of such complex electronic webs, since it minimises interoperability problems, enables code access for cheaper in-house modification or development of systems, and reduces both capital and operating expenditure.
