From a homeostatic to a homeodynamic self
Life as an autonomous homeostatic system is discussed. A mechanism that drives a homeostatic state to an autonomous selfmoving state is examined with two computational cell models...

A Case Study in Goal-Driven Architectural Adaptation
To operate reliably in environments where interaction with an operator is infrequent or undesirable, an autonomous system should be capable of both determining how to achieve its ...

A systematic agent framework for situated autonomous systems
We present a formal framework of an autonomous agent as a collection of coordinated control loops, with a recurring sense, plan, act cycle. Our framework manages the information f...

Anchoring institutions in agents' attitudes: towards a logical framework for autonomous multi-agent systems
The aim of this paper is to provide a logical framework for the specification of autonomous Multi-Agent Systems (MAS). A MAS is autonomous in so far as it is capable of binding (...
