This interdisciplinary publication introduces a wealth of new theories and ideas on creativity, evolutionary computation, and the computational arts. Grounding theory through practical applications, it includes contributions from renowned researchers.
Agent systems are being used to model complex systems like societies, markets and biological systems. This book sheds light upon the complex interrelation between interactivity/exchange and convergence in multi-agent systems, for the first time.
This book showcases the state of the art in algorithms that mimic evolutionary design. The chapters are organized by experts in the following fields: evolutionary design and 'intelligent design' in biology, art, computational embryogeny, and engineering.
This book about coordination in agent-oriented distributed systems offers state-of-the-art reviews of current coordination, strategies, protocols and mechanisms. It also explores trends, challenges and future agent-oriented research directions.
This book covers embedded systems and mobile robots from the introductory to intermediate levels and is broken down into three parts: Embedded systems; mobile robot design; mobile robot applications. It contains all recent research in the fields.
This book examines mobile robots and embedded systems, from introductory to intermediate level. It is structured in three parts, dealing with Embedded Systems, Mobile Robot Design and Mobile Robot Applications. The text includes side-bars, and many figures, photographs, and worked example programs.
Emerging from the HUMAINE project on emotion and computing, ths book covers theories and models; signals to signs; data and databases; emotion in interaction; emotion in cognition and action; persuasion and communication; usability; ethics and good practice.
This text explores the field that examines how embodied and situated agents, such as robots, evolve language and communicate with each other. It covers theoretical and methodological foundations, technological potentials and promising research directions.
