Division of labor in a group of robots inspired by ants' foraging behavior
Thomas H. Labella, Marco Dorigo, Jean-Louis Deneubourg
In this article, we analyze the behavior of a group of robots involved in an object retrieval task. The robots' control system is inspired by a model of ants' foraging. This model emphasizes the role of learning in the individual. Individuals adapt...
Design patterns from biology for distributed computing
Ozalp Babaoglu, Geoffrey Canright, Andreas Deutsch, Gianni A. Di Caro, Frederick Ducatelle, Luca M. Gambardella, Niloy Ganguly, Márk Jelasity, Roberto Montemanni, Alberto Montresor, Tore Urnes
Recent developments in information technology have brought about important changes in distributed computing. New environments such as massively large-scale, wide-area computer networks and mobile ad hoc networks have emerged. Common characteristics...
A software retrieval service based on adaptive knowledge-driven agents for wireless environments
Eduardo Mena, Arantza Illarramendi, Jose A. Royo, Alfredo GoñI
The ability to retrieve software in an easy and efficient way confers competitive advantage on computer users in general and, even more especially, on users of wireless devices (like some laptops, PDAs, etc.). In this article, we present a software...
Automated Facial Expression Classification and affect interpretation using infrared measurement of facial skin temperature variations
Masood Mehmood Khan, Michael Ingleby, Robert D. Ward
Machines would require the ability to perceive and adapt to affects for achieving artificial sociability. Most autonomous systems use Automated Facial Expression Classification (AFEC) and Automated Affect Interpretation (AAI) to achieve sociability....
