Challenging optimisation problems are abundant in all areas of science and industry. Since the 1950s, scientists have responded to this by developing ever-diversifying families of 'black box' optimisation algorithms. The latter are designed to be able to address any optimisation problem, requiring only that the quality of any candidate solution ...

The presence of occlusions in facial images is inevitable in unconstrained scenarios. However recognizing occluded faces remains a partially solved problem in computer vision. In this contribution we propose a novel Bayesian technique inspired by psychophysical mechanisms relevant to face recognition to address the facial occlusion problem. For some individuals ...

We propose a flexible decision support scheme which could be used in managing the wage negotiation between employers and employees. This scheme uses fuzzy inference systems and game theory concepts in arriving at decisions on future wage increase which could be more mutually agreeable. For example, rather than specifying 5% ...

We study uncertainties surrounding competition on business networks and board games. We investigate these uncertainties using concepts of fuzzy logic and game theory. We investigate how the payoff of the players is affected by a number of factors. These include the level of connectivity or number of links, the number ...

Face recognition systems robust to major occlusions have wide applications ranging from consumer products with biometric features to surveillance and law enforcement applications. In unconstrained scenarios, faces are often subject to occlusions, apart from common variations such as pose, illumination, scale, orientation and so on. In this paper we propose ...

A multiagent system is a distributed system where the agents or nodes perform complex functions that cannot be written down in analytic form. Multiagent systems are highly connected, and the information they contain is mostly stored in the connections. When agents update their state, they take into account the state ...

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 ...

Stability is perhaps one of the most desirable features of any engineered system, given the importance of being able to predict its response to various environmental conditions prior to actual deployment. Engineered systems are becoming ever more complex, approaching the same levels of biological ecosystems, and so their stability becomes ...

In multi-agent systems, the underlying networks are always dynamic and network topologies are always changing over time. Performance analyses of topologies are important for understanding the robustness of the system and also the effects of topology on the system efficiency and effectiveness. In this paper, we present an example of ...

Agent systems are being used to model complex systems like societies, markets and biological systems. In this book we investigate issues of agent systems related to convergence and interactivity using techniques from agent based modelling to simulate complex systems, and demonstrate that interactivity/exchange and convergence in multi-agent systems are issues ...

We investigate knowledge exchange among commercial organizations, the rationale behind it, and its effects on the market. Knowledge exchange is known to be beneficial for industry, but in order to explain it, authors have used high-level concepts like network effects, reputation, and trust. We attempt to formalize a plausible and ...

This paper illustrates how a computer model, based on Venn-networks, mimics a physiological phenomenon present in brains of higher animals: contra-lateral inhibition. The experiments were carried out by utilizing the GVNS, i.e. Generalized Venn-network Simulator. The data-set utilized in all simulations consisted of digital representations of finger positions of a ...

Scalability is a vital issue for multi-agent systems. In this paper, we present a trading model of a real-world scenario. It is modelled as networks of interacting agents that can evolve automatically over time, based on behaviors of agents and system configurations. In this model, the agents have resources, and ...

A novel optimisation technique inspired by natural ecosystems is presented, where the optimisation works at two levels: a first optimisation, migration of services 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 ...
