AI 2001 is the 14th within the sequence of Arti cial Intelligence meetings backed by means of the Canadian Society for Computational stories of Intelligence/Soci et e - nadienne pour l’ etude de l’intelligence par ordinateur. As was once the case final yr too, the convention is being held together with the once a year meetings of 2 different Canadian societies, pix Interface (GI 2001) and imaginative and prescient Int- face (VI 2001). We think that the general event could be enriched through this conjunction of meetings. This yr is the \silver anniversary" of the convention: the rst Canadian AI convention was once held in 1976 at UBC. in the course of its lifetime, it has attracted Canadian and overseas papers of top of the range from a number of AI study parts. All papers submitted to the convention acquired no less than 3 indep- dent reports. nearly one 3rd have been permitted for plenary presentation on the convention. the simplest paper of the convention can be invited to seem in Computational Intelligence.

Accounting for Culture. Thinking Through Cultural Citizenship

Many students, practitioners, and policy-makers within the cultural region argue that Canadian cultural coverage is at a crossroads: that the surroundings for cultural policy-making has developed considerably and that conventional rationales for nation intervention now not follow. the concept that of cultural citizenship is a relative newcomer to the cultural coverage panorama, and provides a in all probability compelling replacement purpose for presidency intervention within the cultural area.

Sample text

The upper two levels of the hierarchy consist of holonic agents whose lifecycles are not limited to any point of time. The lowest level includes only agents which do not have to exist all the time and can be created and terminated dynamically. e. the CMM agent in our server structure. But sending all messages to the head of the holon results in a very narrow bottleneck for the system, whereby all co-ordination tasks are slowed down. Thus our CMM agent is only used for performing co-ordination and information tasks within the holon.

The CMM stores the information about the started auction in its database and sends the address of the CX agent executing the auction to the seller, if the seller wants to have auction monitoring (see the dotted line in figure 3) access to the CX agent. Otherwise the CX agent automatically sends information about the auction state in intervals to the seller. While executing an co-ordination task, CX agents forget that they are part of a holon and act as single agents. Thus it is possible for co-ordination participants to contact them directly, this avoids the need to parse all messages from the head of the holon (CMM) down to the CX agents.

Hence a buyer that is by chance interested in buying this specific item asks the CMM agent if such an item is currently auctioned off. The CMM agent says yes to this question and sends the address of the corresponding CX agent stored in its database to the buyer. After that the buyer registers at the CX agent and monitors as well as bids in the auction. After the auction has finished the CX agent reports its outcome to the superior CMech agent that informs the bidders about it. The upper two levels of the hierarchy consist of holonic agents whose lifecycles are not limited to any point of time.
