Policy-Based Governance within Luna: Why We Developed Yet Another Agent Framework
Found in: 2012 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conferences on Web Intelligence (WI) and Intelligent Agent Technologies (IAT)
By Larry Bunch,Jeffrey M. Bradshaw,Tom Eskridge,Paul J. Feltovich,James Lott,Andrzej Uszok,Marco Carvalho
Issue Date:December 2012
pp. 250-256
In this article, we explain our rationale for the development of Luna, a software agent framework. In particular, we focus on how we use capabilities for comprehensive policy-based governance to ensure that key requirements for security, declarative specif...
Knowledge-Based Approaches to Information Management in Coalition Environments
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Andrzej Uszok,Larry Bunch,Jeffrey M. Bradshaw,Thomas Reichherzer,James Hanna,Albert Frantz
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 34-41
The community of interest information-sharing model lets coalition partners publish and disseminate data in a controlled fashion. In this vein, the authors have extended the Phoenix information management system to improve document selection and filtering.
Command and Control Requirements for Moving-Target Defense
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Marco Carvalho,Jeffrey M. Bradshaw,Larry Bunch,Tom Eskridge,Paul J. Feltovich,Robert R. Hoffman,Daniel Kidwell
Issue Date:May 2012
pp. 79-85
The macrocognitive workplace is constantly changing, and a work system can never match its environment completely; there are always gaps in fitness because the work is itself a moving target. This article looks at a domain where the workplace is a moving t...
Dynamic Policy-Driven Quality of Service in Service-Oriented Systems
Found in: Object-Oriented Real-Time Distributed Computing, IEEE International Symposium on
By Joseph P. Loyall, Matthew Gillen, Aaron Paulos, James Edmondson, Pooja Varshneya, Douglas C. Schmidt, Larry Bunch, Marco Carvalho, Andrew Martignoni III
Issue Date:May 2010
pp. 1-9
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) middleware has emerged as a powerful and popular distributed computing paradigm due to its high-level abstractions for composing systems and hiding platform-level details. Control of some details hidden by SOA middleware...
Demonstrating Human-Robot Coordination through Dynamic Regulation
Found in: Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks, IEEE International Workshop on
By Matthew Johnson, Paul J. Feltovich, Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, Larry Bunch
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 231-232
Several key aspects of coordination such as teamwork, roles, and communication, are enabled and driven by, and even largely defined by, various systems of regulation. One key feature of all these elements in human coordination is their dynamic nature. We h...
Policy-Governed Information Exchange in a U.S. Army Operational Scenario
Found in: Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks, IEEE International Workshop on
By Larry Bunch, Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, Clifford O. Young
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 243-244
The authors are investigating how emerging policy and semantic web technologies can be used to help provide the best set of available tactical information to the Soldier in the field. In this initial effort, Researchers from the U.S. Army Research Labs (AR...
New Developments in Ontology-Based Policy Management: Increasing the Practicality and Comprehensiveness of KAoS
Found in: Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks, IEEE International Workshop on
By Andrzej Uszok, Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, James Lott, Maggie Breedy, Larry Bunch, Paul Feltovich, Matthew Johnson, Hyuckchul Jung
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 145-152
The KAoS policy management framework pioneered the use of semantically-rich ontological representation and reasoning to specify, analyze, deconflict, and enforce policies. The framework has continued to evolve over the last five years, inspired by both tec...
A human-agent teamwork command and control framework for moving target defense (MTC2)
Found in: Proceedings of the Eighth Annual Cyber Security and Information Intelligence Research Workshop (CSIIRW '13)
By Larry Bunch, Paul Feltovich
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 1-4
In this paper we discuss the need for a command and control (C2) capability for moving target (MT) defenses. We describe some of the requirements and constraints associated with such a capability, and propose a human-agent teamwork approach for MTC2. We fu...
Kaa: policy-based explorations of a richer model for adjustable autonomy
Found in: Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems (AAMAS '05)
By Andrzej Uszok, Hyuckchul Jung, James Allen, Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, Larry Bunch, Lucian Galescu, Matthew Johnson, Nathanael Chambers, Niranjan Suri, Paul Feltovich, Renia Jeffers, Shri Kulkarni, William Taysom
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 214-221
Though adjustable autonomy is hardly a new topic in agent systems, there has been a general lack of consensus on terminology and basic concepts. In this paper, we describe the multi-dimensional nature of adjustable autonomy and give examples of how various...
