The socio-economics of peer-to-peer systems
David Hales
Peer-to-peer systems, social networks and new economic models offer the possibility of radically decentralized approaches applicable to media, science and finance.

Visualizing complex systems
Ruth Falconer and Mark Shovman
Developing optimization techniques to render large, complex data sets and determining the most effective way, in terms of human perception, to display the data represent significant challenges.

Evolving virtual embryogenesis to structure complex controllers
Ronald Thenius, Michael Bodi, Thomas Schmickl, and Karl Crailsheim
Virtual evolution helps increase the efficiency of classical controller paradigms by implementing substructures with different tasks and capabilities.

Dynamic adaptive language for dynamic adaptive solutions
Helena Keeley and Thomas Keeley
A dynamic analog language provides a path to create adaptive cognitive engines for real-time adaptive-control systems that can explain their decisions and actions.

NASA deploys intelligent software agent technology
Maarten Sierhuis, William J. Clancey, and Timothy Hall
A new automated flight-control system for the International Space Station reduces workload by 90% by employing ethnographic observation and agent-based modelling and simulation.

Self-organizing ants find new paths to scalability
Robert Tolksdorf
The principles of locality and decentralization found in nature could be the key to managing Web data traffic, as shown in initial experiments with a semantic store.

Designers and users dynamically adapt software to fit context
Matthew Chalmers
A new infrastructure allows collaboration in shaping and extending iPhone software to suit individual needs.

Understanding interactions in the smart home
Vic Callaghan, Victor Zamudio, and Jeannette S. Y. Chin
Mathematically based tools are proving helpful in coming to grips with the dynamics⎯both human and machine⎯of advanced networked systems.

Designing and controlling trustworthy self-organising systems
Giovanna Di Marzo Serugendo and John Fitzgerald
Decision-making and adaptation based on dynamic policy enforcement promote predictability and control.

Event recognition for intelligent resource management
Alexander Artikis and George Paliouras
The PRONTO research programme aims to develop a system for real-time, accurate recognition of complex events given multiple sources of information.
