Design and Performance Evaluation of Data Dissemination Systems for Opportunistic Networks Based on Cognitive Heuristics
Marco Conti, Matteo Mordacchini, Andrea Passarella
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/2518017.2518018

In the convergence of the Cyber-Physical World, user devices will act as proxies of the humans in the cyber world. They will be required to act in a vast information landscape, asserting the relevance of data spread in the cyber world, in...

Robust Regulation Adaptation in Multi-Agent Systems
Jordi Campos, Maite Lopez-Sanchez, Maria Salamó, Pedro Avila, Juan A. Rodríguez-Aguilar
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/2517328

Adaptive organisation-centred multi-agent systems can dynamically modify their organisational components to better accomplish their goals. Our research line proposes an abstract distributed architecture (2-LAMA) to endow an organisation with...

Performance Modeling and Optimization of Deadline-Driven Pig Programs
Zhuoyao Zhang, Ludmila Cherkasova, Abhishek Verma, Boon Thau Loo
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/2518017.2518019

Many applications associated with live business intelligence are written as complex data analysis programs defined by directed acyclic graphs of MapReduce jobs, for example, using Pig, Hive, or Scope frameworks. An increasing number of these...

Achieving Socially Optimal Outcomes in Multiagent Systems with Reinforcement Social Learning
Jianye Hao, Ho-Fung Leung
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/2517329

In multiagent systems, social optimality is a desirable goal to achieve in terms of maximizing the global efficiency of the system. We study the problem of coordinating on socially optimal outcomes among a population of agents, in which each agent...
