Projects: Implicit Culture

The Implicit Culture (IC) is a framework for computer-human, or, more generally, computer-agent interactions, which supports, preserves, and encourages desired behavior of the members of communities. IC combines multi-agent systems (MAS) and data mining techniques to facilitate the transfer of implicit knowledge and to assist users in decision making process.

My contribution

Within this project, I participated in the development of the System for Implicit Culture Support (SICS) by analysing, testing, refining and documenting its source code. My main contribution is a first application of the SICS in the area of service-oriented computing. More specifically, I developed a prototype of a system for collaborative web service discovery which combines information retrieval techniques with service execution monitoring on the client side and uses these data to recommend most popular and reliable services to new clients.
