Past Projects [Current Projects]
 
A-Match
A-Match, the interface to the RETSINA Matchmaker, provides a web interface for users to advertise their agents, customize agents, find other agents, and query them.
Adaptive Interoperability of Multiple Heterogeneous Agents
To enable requester agents to find provider agents in environments with heterogeneous and dynamic information services, we have developed middle agents which serve to increase agent interoperability.
Adaptive Web-Based Information Gathering and Filtering
AFOSR PRET: Information Fusion for Command and Control: The Translation of Raw Data To Actionable Knowledge and Decision
We are conducting a multidisciplinary research effort to develop the next generation of information fusion systems.
Agent Aided Command and Control
Agent Storm
Agent Storm is a scenario where agents autonomously coordinate their team-oriented roles and actions while executing a mission.
Agent Transaction Language for Advertising Services (ATLAS)
A DAML-based language for advertising and locating agents, ontologies, and other Web entities.
Agent-based Composition of Behavioral Models (ABC)
This project focuses on accurately modeling human physical behaviors; these models are used 1) to create computer generated forces (CGFs) that exhibit human-like behavior and 2) to recognize physical behaviors performed by trainees in a MOUT (Military Operations in Urban Terrain) team training simulation.
Aircraft Maintenance
A wearable software system that uses RETSINA agents to assist in the process of documenting and making repairs to aircraft.
Bazaar
we are developing an adaptive, multi-issue negotiation model capable of exhibiting a rich set of negotiation behaviors for electronic commerce
CABINS
Case based scheduling.
Case-based Design Tool (CADET)
Case-based design using influence graphs.
COALA
We are developing a model of inter-organizational electronic commerce.
CONCE
Concurrent Engineering
Cooperative Attack Munition Real Time Assessment (CAMRA)
We are developing the algorithms required to achieve cohesive, flexible and robust coordination of large teams of autonomous Wide Area Search Munitions (WASMs) that can be controlled by a small number of human operators.
Cooperative Information Agents
Coordinated Reactive Agents (CORA)
Problem solving through Coordinated Reactive Agents.
CORTES
CORTES is an integrated framework for production planning, scheduling and control (PSC). CORTES uses Constrained Heuristic Search to make PSC decisions.
Daml-S
We are developing DAML as part of the Semantic Web initiative.
Daml-S (Semantic) Matchmaker
We have developed our Semantic Matchmaker, an entity that will allow web services to locate other services, using DAML-S, a DAML-based language for describing service capabilities.
Discovery
We are developing an autoconfiguration mechanism for agents and infrastructures.
Dynamic Visualized Information Agent (DVINA)
Knowledge-Based Agent for Information Extraction & Retrieval
Dynamics of Complex Engineered Societies
in this project, researchers deal with scaling of the evolutionary search
Ecommerce Institute
The function of the Institute is to serve as a focal point for Electronic Commerce activities at Carnegie Mellon, to offer degree programs and executive education and to conduct research.
Electronic Commerce
Experience Based Synthesis of Electronic Mechanical Devices
IBM ITA: Human-Agent Teamwork Models
We are developing models of human-agent teamwork for implementation in software agent systems.
Integrating Intelligent Assistants into Human Teams (Joccasta)
A multi-disciplinary research project designed to increase the effectiveness of team decision making in joint planning tasks.
Interoperability of Future Information Systems (IFIS)
We are developing techniques to help users diagnose and remedy network interoperability problems.
Language for Advertisement and Request for Knowledge Sharing (LARKS)
A common agent capability description language (ACDL) for matching service-requesting software agents with service-providing software agents.
Matchmaker
A middle agent that facilitates conections among agents that provide services and agents that request services.
Middle Agents for the Internet
MIGSOCK
We are developing MIGSOCK, a Linux kernel module that re-implements TCP to make socket migration possible.
MINTEC
Supply chain management
Mobile Communications amongst Heterogeneous Agents (MoCHA)
We are developing a multi-agent system for "Anyware" communications and display.
MokSAF
A software environment for route planning and team coordination.
MORSE
The MORSE project is a simulated range operation, designed to evaluate effectiveness of the cognitive models and agents, in order to improve individual and team performance.
Pleiades
A project aimed at developing methods for automating negotiation among agents and implementing effective machine learning techniques.
RETSINA Configuration Manager (RECoMa)
We present the RETSINA Configuration Manager, RECoMa, which uses agent infrastructure to assist the multi-agent system administrator in allocating, launching, and monitoring a heterogeneous distributed agent system.
RETSINA Semantic Web Calendar Agent
We are Retsina Semantic Web Calendar Agent to assist in organizing and scheduling meetings between several individuals, and coordinating these meetings based on existing schedules maintained by MS Outlook.
Reusable Environment for Task Structured Intelligent Network Agents (RETSINA)
An architecture for developing distributed intelligent software agents that cooperate asynchronously to perform goal-directed information retrieval and information integration in support of a varie
Secure Agent Name Server
We are developing a secure agent name server which requires preregistration for deployment.
Text Miner
We are developing Text Miner, a system that automatically classifies news reports on a company's financial outlook.
Thales
Satellite visibility forecaster
Urban Search and Rescue
We are developing Hybrid Teams of Autonomous Agents: Cyber Agents, Robots and People (CARPs) to address the challenges of urban search and rescue.
