Recent Results

A hybrid technology of context aware decision support intended for dynamic environments consisting of autonomous computational and acting resources. The technology is planned for context-based resource integration aiming at involvement of the resources in finding solutions for ad hoc problems (participating in joint activities). The technology is based on integration of the previously developed technology of knowledge logistics with the technologies of Web-services, smart spaces, and Web-communities. The developed technology enables to considerable reduce volumes of information being processed, organize efficient resource coordination, quickly organize Web-based communities and involve the acting resources into them, and efficiently engage the resources in the joint actions (traffic accident response, ridesharing, and efficiently involve the acting resources into Web-based communities and flexible supply networks, etc.) [1-6, 8, 9, 11-15, 17-21, 23-30, 32-34, 36-38].
A method of context-aware service composition intended for integration of Web-services aiming at finding solutions for a user task or at achievement of a common goal. A multilevel model of matching the application ontology and WSDL service descriptions (at lexical, syntactic, semantic, and context levels), and a model of self-organization of a service network based on a non-instantiated model of the current situation, functional service semantics, and principles of efficient service usage (maximal functionality, maximal availability interval, and minimal "weight") make up the core of the method. Application of the method enables to efficiently organize service networks most satisfying the current user requirements, even for cloud Web-services [7, 10, 16, 22, 31, 35].
A method to specify and implement physical models of dynamic systems. The method is based on usage of the situation and event-driven formalism of interacting discrete-continuous process specification. The knowledge of the process evolution is presented in the form of a production rule lists, which determine consequence relations of the logic-dynamic situation models and hybrid process states [39, 40].
