This thesis proposes a novel method for allocating multi-attribute computational resources via competing marketplaces. Trading agents, working on behalf of resource consumers and providers, choose to trade in resource markets where the resources being traded best align with their preferences and...

An approach to the online learning of Takagi-Sugeno (TS) type models is proposed in the paper. It is based on a novel learning algorithm that recursively updates TS model structure and parameters by combining supervised and unsupervised learning. The rule-base and parameters of the TS model...

The development of real-time traffic models is of paramount importance for the purposes of optimising traffic flow. Inspired by the compositional model (CM) [1] and the METANET model [2], [3], this paper proposes an interval approach for macroscopic traffic modeling. We develop an interval...

This paper describes an approach to design self-developing and self-tuning inferential soft sensors applicable to process industries. The proposal is for a Takagi-Sugeno-fuzzy system framework that has evolving (open structure) architecture, and an on-line (possibly real-time) learning...

A new approach to passive detection and avoidance of collision and near-collision with moving obstacles by Uninhabited Aerial Systems (UAS) is proposed in this paper. It takes as inputs the bearings between the ownship and the moving obstacles (intruders) only. Bearings can be measured by...

This paper outlines a new software system we have developed that utilises the newly developed method (DS/AHP) which combines aspects of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) with Dempster–Shafer Theory for the purpose of multi-criteria decision making (MCDM). The method allows a decision maker...

This paper considers the implementation of IT infrastructures from the perspective of their ongoing performance. Based on a case study of the implementation of Lotus Notes in a manufacturing company in the UK, it depicts this performance as the interaction between issues and concerns emerging...

Bringing transactions to an end constitutes a crucial stage of market activity: the detachment between the counterparties engaged in a trade must be guaranteed. In financial markets, this operation relies on organisational technologies, such as clearinghouses, that can reach a high degree of...

Empirical studies on information communication technologies (ICT) typically aggregate the “information” and “communication” components together. We show theoretically and empirically that these have very different effects on the empowerment of employees, and by extension on wage...

An enormous amount of information has been produced about the IT outsourcing phenomenon over the last 20 years, but one has to look to the academic literature for consistent, objective, and reliable research approaches and analyses. Our review finds that, in practice, the academic literature on...
