AI 2001 is the 14th within the sequence of Arti cial Intelligence meetings backed through the Canadian Society for Computational reviews of Intelligence/Soci et e - nadienne pour l’ etude de l’intelligence par ordinateur. As used to be the case final yr too, the convention is being held along side the yearly meetings of 2 different Canadian societies, photographs Interface (GI 2001) and imaginative and prescient Int- face (VI 2001). We think that the final adventure could be enriched through this conjunction of meetings. This yr is the \silver anniversary" of the convention: the rst Canadian AI convention used to be held in 1976 at UBC. in the course of its lifetime, it has attracted Canadian and overseas papers of top quality from numerous AI learn parts. All papers submitted to the convention bought a minimum of 3 indep- dent experiences. nearly one 3rd have been approved for plenary presentation on the convention. the easiest paper of the convention could be invited to seem in Computational Intelligence.

A Sense of Their Duty: Middle-Class Formation in Victorian Ontario Towns

Commercial switch, the growth of presidency in any respect degrees, and inhabitants progress all contributed to profound changes in Ontario's social constitution among the 1850s and the Nineties. The altering atmosphere created new possibilities, new wealth, and new authority. In urbanizing Ontario, an identifiable and self-identified heart classification emerged among the idle wealthy and the perennial operating type.

The Siren Years: A Canadian Diplomat Abroad, 1937-1945

Charles Ritchie, one in all Canada’s so much exceptional diplomats, used to be a born diarist, a guy whose day-by-day list of his lifestyles is so good written that it leaps from the page.

In wartime England, Ritchie, as moment Secretary on the Canadian excessive fee, served as inner most secretary to Vincent Massey, whose second-in-command used to be Lester B. Pearson, destiny major minister of Canada. In an ideal place to monitor either statecraft and the London social whirl that persisted even throughout the conflict, Ritchie presents a desirable, perceptive, and (surprisingly) funny photograph of the London Blitz – the folk within the parks, the shabby streets, the heightened amorous affairs – and the vagaries of the British at struggle. There also are glimpses of the nice, and photos of famous artists and writers that he knew well.

A bright rfile of a interval and a superb piece of writing, The Siren Years has develop into a vintage.

Example text

The upper two levels of the hierarchy consist of holonic agents whose lifecycles are not limited to any point of time. The lowest level includes only agents which do not have to exist all the time and can be created and terminated dynamically. e. the CMM agent in our server structure. But sending all messages to the head of the holon results in a very narrow bottleneck for the system, whereby all co-ordination tasks are slowed down. Thus our CMM agent is only used for performing co-ordination and information tasks within the holon.

The CMM stores the information about the started auction in its database and sends the address of the CX agent executing the auction to the seller, if the seller wants to have auction monitoring (see the dotted line in figure 3) access to the CX agent. Otherwise the CX agent automatically sends information about the auction state in intervals to the seller. While executing an co-ordination task, CX agents forget that they are part of a holon and act as single agents. Thus it is possible for co-ordination participants to contact them directly, this avoids the need to parse all messages from the head of the holon (CMM) down to the CX agents.
