Use of InfoSleuth to Coordinate Information Acquisition, Tracking and Analysis in Complex Applications

  title={Use of InfoSleuth to Coordinate Information Acquisition, Tracking and Analysis in Complex Applications},
  author={Larry M. Deschaine and Richard S. Brice and Marian H. Nodine},
Today’s world is characterized by accessibility to a wide variety of information sources. This provides both the luxury of being able to know and use more information and the problem of accessing it in the manner required by our work and our computer applications. Many applications, including simulation-type applications, are no longer hampered by the availability of data, but rather are concerned with the accessibility of that data. We see three separate needs that an informationoriented… 

Grid application meta-repository system

A new Grid repository is designed (GAMRS – Grid Application Meta-Repository System), which includes a novel model and architecture, an improved application description language and a matchmaking system, which is proved that GAMRS marks an improvement in Grid repository systems.

Distributed and reactive query planning in R-MAGIC: an agent-based multimedia retrieval system

A prototype implementation of a cooperative agent-based multimedia retrieval architecture that integrates a set of dissimilar collections of multimedia data on Indian cultural heritage and a comparison of the retrieval results with some existing Internet search tools proves the effectiveness of the architecture.

Principes et architecture pour la personnalisation d'information en interaction homme-machine, application à l'information transport

PerSyst, a framework based on software agents, is proposed, being able to be used as support for the design of a Personalization System, facilitates the management and the transmission of personalized information in a distributed and a evolutionary system.

A multi-agent system for automated genomic annotation

DECAF, a multi-agent system toolkit based on RETSINA and TAEMS, is used to construct a prototype multi- agent system for automated annotation and database storage of sequencing data for herpesviruses.

Connecting enterprise architecture and information objects using an enterprise ontology

In this paper we show how semantic metadata - derived from the enterprise architecture description - can improve both the exploitation of information in the operative business and the continuous

Managing document images in a digital library: an ontology guided approach

Heritage+ deals with document images as distinct media type and implements tools and techniques for browsing and querying document images along with other media elements like video sequences and images and proposes a new scheme for encoding and use of ontology for accessing multimedia collection.

Ontology-Based Data Integration Methods: A Framework for Comparison

This paper shows similarities and differences among the systems by providing a framework for comparison and classification, and describes seven systems and three proposals for ontology -based data integration.

Ontology-based cooperation of information systems : contributions to database-to-ontology mapping and XML-to-ontology mapping. (Coopération des systèmes d'information basée sur les ontologies)

This thesis focuses on the problem of connecting the local information sources to the local ontologies within OWSCIS architecture, a global architecture based on ontologies and web-services for the cooperation of distributed heterogeneous information systems.

Extending a Multi-agent System for Genomic Annotation

A progress report on the use of the DECAF multi-agent toolkit to build reusable information gathering systems for bioinformatics is given.

On the Impact of Ontological Commitment

Ontological commitment, or the agreement to have your applications and users conform to a common domain understanding as encapsulated in one or more shared ontologies, is a noble goal and essential



The Role of Java in InfoSleuth: Agent-based Exploitation of Heterogeneous Information Resources

Finding, retrieving, and integrating information from geographically disparate data resources is a difficult problem that large organizations have faced for decades. In recent years, the size and
