Agent-based structures clearly supplement SOC through supplying the intelligence and reasoning services which are needed.
The integration of brokers and SOC is a wide and energetic learn region. This e-book is a suite of chapters from specialists within the box, that provides an outline of the cutting-edge on the whole components of present study, and identifies most likely destiny instructions. Researchers, scholars and practitioners will locate this e-book an invaluable perception into the present state of the art.
