  • Intelligent agents and the Semantic Web
    Developing an intelligent Web
    Daniel J Lewis, Technology Evangelist/Computer Scientist, OpenLink Software
    Summary: The Semantic Web envisioned by Berners-Lee, Hendler, and Lassila in 2001 was a grandiose vision that involved the use of agents to book doctor appointments and to find the best driving routes with the least hassle. The envisaged system was built upon formal ontologies that had already achieved a large following of scientists and agent developers. Although they raised some important issues and put forward interesting connections between technologies, they missed one thing: the fact that the Web had turned into a web of documents. Therefore, a middle way needed to occur between the formalism of ontologies and the informalism of documents. This is known as Linked Data. Linked Data coupled with agent technology is an ideal way of dealing with Semantic Web data. This article provides an overview o

    The current state of the web technologies allow the development successful of academic collaborative networks
    focused on the research. This paper proposes a framework that satisfies the work requirements of engineering academic and researchers teams located in different geographical areas. Aweb site integrates all the technologies selected. Specific tasks as the communication, contents management, or links management can be solved in collaborative way with the application of the web technologies selected. This framework can be applied in master or doctoral studies that follow ..

    ABSTRACT
    Open Educational Practices and Resources are a direct response to privatization of knowledge; they promote their exchange across the world with the aim of increasing human intellectual capacity. In this document we will discuss the Open Educational Practices and Resources Movement and the notion that knowledge is a public good where technology in general, and specifically Web 2.0, provide an extraordinary opportunity for people to acquire key competences in a knowledge society while they share, use, and re-use digital contents….
  • CALL FOR PAPERS – Special Issue on Multidisciplinary Applications and Future Trends of Learning Objects

    Summary
    One aspect of e-learning current receiving considerable attention is the Learning Object, i.e., an entity of learning capable of being reused in different instructional situations. Therefore, Learning Objects are fundamental elements of a new conceptual model for content creation and distribution. As a result, Learning Objects are one of the most significant promises in order to increase and improve the effectiveness of learning process.

  • STUDY OF THE APPLICATION OF NEURAL NETWORKS
    IN INTERNET TRAFFIC ENGINEERING
    Nelson Piedra, Janneth Chicaiza, Jorge López, Jesús García
    Abstract: In this study, we showed various approachs implemented in Artificial Neural Networks for network
    resources management and Internet congestion control. Through a training process, Neural Networks can
    determine nonlinear relationships in a data set by associating the corresponding outputs to input patterns.
    Therefore, the application of these networks to Traffic Engineering can help achieve its general objective:
    “intelligent” agents or systems capable of adapting dataflow according to available resources. In this article, we
    analyze the opportunity and feasibility to apply Artificial Neural Networks to a number of tasks related to Traffic
    Engineering. In previous sections, we present the basics of each one of these disciplines, which are associated to
    Artificial Intelligence and Computer Networks respectively.
