Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper we outline a human-centered multilayered multiagent distributed soft computing architecture for providing support to practitioners and problem solvers at four levels, namely, clerical, tool, optimization and task level, respectively. We describe the emergent characteristics of the architecture from a architectural, management and domain perspective. We illustrate the application of those four levels with the help of two image processing applications namely, face detection and annotation, and unstained mammalian cell classification.
