An Innovative Implementation of Artificial Intelligence in Distributed Systems Design
There is a very close relationship between problems encountered in Distributed Processing Systems (DPSs) and Distributed Artificial Intelligence systems (DAIs). In DPSs and DAIs one has to deal with problems related to factors represented in the ALTASOC spectrum, i.e., architectures, technologies, languages, algorithms, structures, operating systems and communications. This paper concentrates on how AI (Artificial Intelligence) techniques can be applied to enhance the design of the front-end subsystem of each host in a distributed environment. The functions of the front end subsystem that will be addressed in this paper are user interface, management interconnection in the case of heterogeneous systems and security.
