SASO 2018

IEEE (f*) proceedings list (conference should show up here)

Keynote Gábor Vásárhelyi – CollMot Robotics, Budapest, Hungary (chair A. Montresor, room: FBK – Sala Stringa)

  • Multi-level hierarchy in pigeons (gps), wild horses (drone video)
  • Tight turns with pigeons rearrange order. Gentle turns maintain structure
  • Universal rules of collective motion
  • evolution is the best optimizer that they have found
  • Hierarchy aids emergent optimization
  • Drones are exploding in youth. Why? Fashion? Like AI in the ’70’s. Will it then crash?
  • Salable in size and speed
  • Tolerate noise, delay, and error tolerant
  • Controllable meta-unit
  • Drones need to be
    • Extensable
    • real-time
    • sensors
    • communication
    • simulation for dev and debugging
    • algorithms
  • Enemies
    • delay
    • noise
    • inertia,
    • finite acceleration
    • communication errors
    • environment?
  • Communication delays bring self-exited oscillation (repulsion-attraction temporal imbalance)
  • Evolution is the second-best optimization function for all problems
  • Solving decentralized traffic control. A sort of inverse flocking issue
  • Anisotropic repulsion
  • Selective alignment
  • Publications
  • Smaller and lighter (more maneuverable) flocks are more egalitarian. Heavier, smaller groups have hierarchies because there can be trust.

Rule-based utility-driven???
Sona Ghahremani, Christian Medeiros Adriano and Holger Giese

  • Another hyperparameter approach. This one seems quite good
  • Handles
    • Non-linearities
    • Uncertainty from dynamic archetecture
    • Black box models
  • How to select the right model for a class of utility functions prior to deployment
  • Graph grammar rules
  • mRUBiS
    • mRUBiS as an exemplar for model-based architectural self-adaptation is now available at GitHub. It provides a simulator and architectural runtime model of mRUBiS to develop, evaluate, and compare self-adaptation solutions.

Model-Driven Elasticity Control for Multi-Server Queues Under Traffic Surges in Cloud Environments
Venkat Tadakamalla and Daniel Menasce

A Temporal Model for Interactive Diagnosis of Adaptive Systems
Ludovic Mouline, Amine Benelallam, Francois Fouquet, Johann Bourcier and Olivier Barais

  • Might be a way of evaluating fitness tests?
  • At least keep track of the last N (or whole history?) of chromosome so that the principal components can be analyzed.
  • By comparing the states over time, we could find the states adjacent to problem states?

Towards Generic Adaptive Monitoring
Thomas Brand and Holger Giese

  • Goal adaptation (fitness test adaptation?)

Implementing Feedback for ABM Meta-Modeling
Karan Budhraja and Tim Oates

PINCH: Self-Organized Context Neighborhoods for Smart Environments
Chenguang Liu, Christine Julien and Amy L. Murphy

  • Neighborhood mesh networks
  • everything is stored in a small beacon that is cooperatively shared in the neighborhood

A QoS-aware Adaptive Mobility Handling Approach for LoRa-based IoT Systems
Robbe Berrevoets and Danny Weyns

Reins-MAC: Firefly Inspired Communication Scheduling for Reliable Low-Power Wireless
Matteo Ceriotti and Amy L. Murphy
