The Design of a Symbiotic Agent for Recognizing Real Space in Ubiquitous Environments

  title={The Design of a Symbiotic Agent for Recognizing Real Space in Ubiquitous Environments},
  author={S. Fujita and K. Sugawara and C. Moulin},
The growth of ubiquitous computing and Web services is expected to make everyday life of people more convenient, and it is also expected to make the society safer and more active. However, the problems of the Internet age such as the digital divide, network criminals and the insecurity of privacy prevent many people from seeing the benefits of the Internet. To solve the problems, we have been studying a methodology which aims at developing a cognitive agent which supports the social activities… Expand


A design of cognitive agents for recognizing real space — towards symbiotic computing —
This paper proposes a design of cognitive agents to enhance the cognitive function for symbiotic applications to recognize the real space and calls this cognitive agent as symbiotic agent which is included in proposed symbiotic functions to establish symbiotic computing. Expand
Concept of Symbiotic Computing and its Agent-Based Application to a Ubiquitous Care-Support Service
An agent-based care-support service to enable supervision of persons by their families and friends easily while protecting privacy is developed and a hierarchical structure of multi-agents is organized dynamically using heuristics in agents based on the situation of a watched person and watching persons.

Agent-based Recognition of Relations among People using GPS Data
An agent-based recognition of relations among people using GPS data to show context information to parent who watch over his child to keep safety on road to go to school. Expand
A Ubiquitous Care-Support Service based on Agent-oriented Multiple-Context Coordination
This paper introduces an autonomous decision making ability and cooperative behavior to each entity in uEyes, based on agentbased computing technologies, and confirms that supervision services that fulfill detailed users' requirements can be provided effectively. Expand
A Concept of Symbiotic Computing and its Application to Telework
The symbiotic computing provides a cyberspace into which RS and DS are integrated through an e-Bridge, where the authors can receive the benefits easily and safely without IT skills. Expand
Man-Computer Symbiosis
Preliminary analyses indicate that the symbiotic partnership will perform intellectual operations much more effectively than man alone can perform them. Expand
Interactive Design Method of Agent System for Symbiotic Computing
An interactive design system founded on an agent-repository based multiagent framework which emphasizes an important feature of agent system design: the use/reuse of existing agents from an agent repository is proposed. Expand

If untrained consumers are to employ future computers and networks effectively, direct manipulation will have to give way to some form of delegation, and this change in functionality will most likely go hand in hand with a change in the physical ways people interact with computers. Expand
Neo-Symbiosis: The Next Stage in the Evolution of Human Information Interaction
The purpose of this article is to re-address the vision of human-computer symbiosis as originally expressed by J.C.R. Licklider nearly a half-century ago and to argue for the relevance of this visionExpand
