Description & Coverage
Description:

Biologically inspired computation methods are growing in popularity in intelligent systems, creating a need for more research and information.

Multi-Agent Applications with Evolutionary Computation and Biologically Inspired Technologies: Intelligent Techniques for Ubiquity and Optimization compiles numerous ongoing projects and research efforts in the design of agents in light of recent development in neurocognitive science and quantum physics. This innovative collection provides readers with interdisciplinary applications of multi-agents systems, ranging from economics to engineering.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Agent-based knowledge acquisition
  • Ant colony clustering method
  • Autonomous mobile sensors
  • Computations for financial applications
  • Coordinating collective behavior
  • Decentralized pervasive systems
  • Evolving artificial neural network
  • Exploitation oriented learning
  • Financial hybrid systems
  • Man-machine system
  • Neural-like assumptions
  • Simple artificial market
Reviews & Statements

This volume covers six subjects, which of course are not exhaustive but are sufficiently representative of the current important developments of MAS and, in the meantime, point to the directions for the future. When computer science becomes more social and the social sciences become more computational, publications that can facilitate the talks between the two disciplines are demanded. This edited volume demonstrates our efforts to work this out.
