Control Theory-Based Foundations of Self-Controlling Software
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Mieczyslaw M. Kokar, Kenneth Baclawski, Yonet A. Eracar
Issue Date:May 1999
pp. 37-45
The authors propose a paradigm for the development of self-controlling software, one that combines the advantages of control theory and software engineering. The authors introduce a series of progressively more sophisticated software models based on corres...
Situation Awareness and Cognitive Modeling
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Mieczyslaw M. Kokar,Mica R. Endsley
Issue Date:May 2012
pp. 91-96
This paper discusses the basic concepts of computer support for situationn awareness. The main idea is to share “situations” by computer and human agents. Two cases of situation awareness are discussed. Some of the future research topics are listed.
Metrics For Monitoring A Social-Political Blogosphere: A Malaysian Case Study
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Brian Ulicny, Mieczyslaw M. Kokar, Christopher J. Matheus
Issue Date:March 2010
pp. 34-44
The authors' automated framework evaluates blog posts in a social-political blogosphere and, by aggregation, entire blogs according to their relevance, specificity, timeliness, and credibility. These metrics are superior to current methods in information r...
Application of Self Controlling Software Approach to Reactive Tabu Search
Found in: Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems, IEEE International Conference on
By Nilgun Fescioglu-Unver, Mieczyslaw M. Kokar
Issue Date:October 2008
pp. 297-305
In this paper the principle of self adaptation is appliedto achieve a self controlling software. The software considered in this case is a heuristic search algorithm: the reactive tabu search. In reactive search algorithms, the behavior of the algorithm is...
A Demonstration of Formal Policy Reasoning Using an Extended Version of??BaseVISor
Found in: Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks, IEEE International Workshop on
By Christopher J. Matheus, Mieczyslaw M. Kokar, Robert Dionne
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 225-227
This demonstration will show the practical application of a formal reasoning engine for both policy invocation and policy reconciliation. The primary features of this demonstration include the use of formal ontologies, context based policy reasoning, and s...
BaseVISor: A Triples-Based Inference Engine Outfitted to Process RuleML and R-Entailment Rules
Found in: Rules and Rule Markup Languages for the Semantic Web, International Conference on
By Christopher J. Matheus, Ken Baclawski, Mieczyslaw M. Kokar
Issue Date:November 2006
pp. 67-74
BaseVISor is a forward-chaining inference engine based on a Rete network optimized for the processing of RDF triples. A clause within the body and head of a rule either represents an RDF triple or invokes a procedural attachment (either built-in or user de...
Using a Task-Specific QoS for Controlling Sensing Requests and Scheduling
Found in: Network Computing and Applications, IEEE International Symposium on
By Yong Xun, Mieczyslaw M. Kokar, Kenneth Baclawski
Issue Date:September 2004
pp. 269-276
Typically, management of networked computational and sensing nodes is based upon a quality of service metric (QoS) that is based on some generic principles, like
