17
What are mesoscale eddies
  • Mesoscale Size scale of about 100km
  • Eddies are energetic swirling currents found all
    over the ocean
  • Mesoscale eddies have deep roots of about 5km
  • They can transport momentum to the sea floor

18
Why are mesoscale eddies important?
  • Poleward Heat transport
  • Heat moved by the from the equator towards poles
  • An important quantity in Climate Studies
  • Oceans are partly responsible for poleward heat
    transport
  • Contribution of mesoscale eddies to heat transport

19
Why are mesoscale eddies important?
  • Biological communities of the ocean
  • Strongly affected by ocean circulation and
    mesoscale eddies
  • Nutrient rich cold water at the bottom
  • Cold cyclonic eddies can lift this nutrient
    waters towards surface
  • Sunlight on surface helps nutrient rich water
    promote chlorophyll rich plankton, and thereby
    the food chain from plankton to whales

Current research projectssophisticated
negotiation
  • This research is focused on the sophisticated
    negotiation in multi-agent systems for complex
    distributed applications. It explores a number of
    ideas to speed up the negotiation and reduce the
    computational burden involving how to order
    overlapping negotiations in time and
    abstractions, and how to constrain individual
    negotiation in terms of a concept called
    flexibility and where to pre-plan for the
    possibility of re-visiting settled negotiations
    by introducing flexibility into the original
    statement of the issue being negotiated so as to
    limit the effects of re-negotiation on other
    settled issues. Specifically, we focus on the
    following issues related to negotiations in our
    target application areas ordering of multiple
    Related negotiations, abstraction in hierarchical
    negotiation, and flexibility management for
    sophisticated negotiations.

Study of Formation of Virtual Organization
  • Virtual organization refers to the temporary
    teaming of organizations for the rapid
    development of a new product or service by
    sharing physical, human and knowledge resources,
    via information technologies, a virtual
    organization enables member enterprises to share
    skills, costs, access to one anothers markets
    and, at the same time decrease the risk of
    investments. To realize this new generation of
    business model, the ability to form, operation,
    and dissolution of virtual enterprise is of
    foremost importance. While the concepts of
    virtual organization are similar to a traditional
    vertically integrated enterprise, however, its
    implementation in e-marketplace remains a
    difficult task as challenges and obstacles remain
    unsolved.
  • The project is to implement a multi-agent system
    that simulates an artificial e-marketplace, for
    which we have derive mechanisms for the
    decision-making processes in various stages of a
    virtual organization. In order to better
    understand the organizational problem, we have
    conducted experiments to study the behaviors of
    individual organizations (represented by agents)
    under different control settings. In additional,
    we have modified a statistical model, that
    predicts scheduling conflicts and agent rewards,
    as a verification tool for the correctness of our
    agent system.

81
Emotional and rational agents
  • There are two approaches to build intelligent
    agents. Traditional AI approach is to develop
    rational agent, rational technologies include
    searching, logic reasoning, planning, scheduling,
    learning, probabilistic reasoning, decision
    making, and etc. Another approach is to build
    emotional agents based on affective mechanisms. A
    number of applications for emotional agents have
    been explored. However, little work has been done
    to study the connection of the traditional AI
    mechanisms (rational approaches) and the new
    affective computing mechanisms (emotion-based
    approaches).
  • In this project is to build a hybrid agent
    architecture, which integrates both rational
    reasoning mechanisms and emotional mechanisms.
    With such architecture, we are going to verify
    the hypothesis that whether the emotional
    mechanisms improve the agents performance, and
    in what circumstance. We will also like to
    explore how the emotion affects agents social
    behavior. Additionally, this project will create
    a test-bed for social science researchers to run
    experiments and test hypothesis related to
    emotion and social behavior.
