  • Application of Digital Ecosystems in health domain

    Digital ecosystems (DES) have recently been introduced into the computer and information societies. A digital ecosystem is the dynamic and synergetic complex of Digital Communities consisting of interconnected, interrelated and interdependent digital species situated in a digital environment, that interact as a functional unit and are linked together through actions, information and transaction flows. Digital ecosystems integrate various cutting-edge technologies including ontologies, agent-based and self- organizing systems, swarm intelligence, ambient intelligence, data mining etc. The synergetic effects of these methodologies results in a more efficient, effective, reliable and secure system. The application of DES within the health domain would transform the way in which health information is created, stored, accessed, used, managed, analyzed and shared, and would bring an innovative breakthrough within health domain. In this paper, we illustrate how the DES design methodology can be implemented within the health domain. We focus on the key factors associated with the DES design. The design methodology framework allows better control over the design process and serves as a navigating tool during the digital health ecosystems design.

  • Cyber-Physical Systems as an embodiment of Digital Ecosystems extended abstract

    Summary form only given. Digital Ecosystems represent the union between the digital world and real world. Cyber-Physical Systems provide a unified framework for connecting the abstract computational artifacts with the physical world. This allows for robust and flexible architectural design with multi-scale dynamics and integrated wired and wireless networking for managing the flows of mass, energy, and information in a coherent way. An example of Cyber Physical Systems is connecting sensors (which provide information from the physical world) to the internet (which represents the cyber world). Cyber- Physical Systems has recently been listed as the No.1 research priority by the U.S. President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. Cyber-Physical Systems framework has the capability to tackle numerous scientific, social and economical issues. However, building Cyber-Physical Systems is not a trivial task. It requires a new ground-breaking theory that models cyber and physical resources in a unified framework. Digital Ecosystems constitute a superset which includes these Cyber Physical systems. Thus the underlying theories of Digital Ecosystems will help to provide important pointers to the development of these Cyber Physical Systems. None of the current state-of-the-art methods are able to overcome the challenges of building such Cyber Physical Systems due to the fact that computer science and theories underlying the real world have developed independently based on overly-simplified assumptions of each other. For example, many key requirements (e.g. uncertainty, inaccuracy, etc.) crucial to physical systems are not captured and fully dealt within the computer science research agenda. Similarly computational complexity, system evolution, software failure and failures of computer hardware are often ignored from the viewpoint of theories of the physical world, which treats computation as a precise, error-free, static `black-box'. The solution to Cyber-Physical Systems must break the boundary between the cyber world and the physical world by providing a unified infrastructure that permits integrated models addressing issues from both worlds simultaneously. Therefore, in this keynote, we explore an approach to such an infrastructure using the framework of Digital Ecosystems.

  • Providing Security for Digital Ecosystems with Adaptative Encryption

    One of the most important issues for digital ecosystems is the encryption of sensitive data across the different ecosystems, as the heterogeneity in their nature, capabilities and necessities make it very difficult to find a solution that may be applied to all of them. There are not proposals that suit these specific needs of digital ecosystems, especially the flexibility, required for defining adequate security policies and favouring secure information exchange. In this paper we show how adaptative encryption can provide digital ecosystems with a flexible, while secure, means for protecting information.

  • Developing a conceptual framework of semantic search engine to promote the collaborations between SMEs in the digital ecosystems environment

    The research with regards to digital ecosystems emerged in the end of last century, and has developed in this century. Due to its immaturity, some fields within it are deemed to be blank. This research proposes to fill one of the blanks in the digital ecosystems research. By analyzing the issues in the current research, we propose to develop a semantic search engine, with the purpose of querying services provided by SMEs. The objective of this research is to build a reliable and trustworthy link between SMEs in the digital ecosystems environment. Relevant research methods and steps are discussed in this paper.

  • Methodology framework for the design of digital ecosystems

    Digital ecosystems have recently been introduced into the computer and information societies. Digital ecosystem (DES) is the dynamic and synergetic complex of digital communities consisting of interconnected, interrelated and interdependent digital species (DS) situated in a digital environment (DE) that interact as a functional unit and are linked together through actions, information and transaction flows. DES transpose mechanisms from living organisms like autonomy, viability and self-organisation to arrive at novel knowledge and architectures. The proposed DES embraces a number of different technologies such as ontologies, agent-based and self-organizing systems etc. The synergetic effects of these methodologies results in a more efficient, effective, reliable and secure system. DES is still in its early implementation phase. No clear methodology for digital ecosystem design exists yet. In this paper, we propose a methodological framework that consists of five phases and addresses many different aspects of the DES design. In this methodology, we focus on the key factors associated with the DES design such as roles of different digital components within the DES, organisation and collaboration of the digital components, their individual design along with intelligence and security within the DES. More details are introduced at each step and every sequential step takes the DES to a higher level of elaboration. This methodological framework allows better control over the design process and serves as a navigating tool during DES design.

  • Focused Crawling for Automatic Service Discovery, Annotation, and Classification in Industrial Digital Ecosystems

    Digital Ecosystems make use of Service Factories for service entities' publishing, classification, and management. However, before the emergence of Digital Ecosystems, there existed ubiquitous and heterogeneous service information in the Business Ecosystems environment. Therefore, dealing with the preexisting service information becomes a crucial issue in Digital Ecosystems. This issue has not been addressed previously in the literature. In order to resolve this issue, in this paper, we present a conceptual framework for a semantic focused crawler, with the purpose of automatically discovering, annotating, and classifying the service information with the Semantic Web technologies. The technical and evaluation details of the framework are also presented and discussed in this paper.

  • Service descriptions in Digital Ecosystems: based on standards and converters

    This paper focuses on the description of services and the application of the two concepts standardization and conversion as key aspects to enhance interoperability in Digital Ecosystems. Firstly we elaborate the nature and properties of services and then we discuss how approved international e-Business standards like BMEcat and eCl@ass may be used to define, describe, exchange and classify services. Here we also adress aspects like building service variants, configuring services and service-bundles. The conversion concept we analyze in more detail based on experiences from the innovative German e-Government project D115. This project aims to exchange public-service descriptions between all public authorities and to harmonize them by use of ontologies. The main statement of this paper is: Both concepts, standardization and conversion, are suitable for the description and the exchange of services and offer an unemployed but remarkable potential to enhance interoperability in Digital-Ecosystems.

  • Digital ecosystems in the clouds: Towards community cloud computing

    Cloud Computing is rising fast, with its data centres growing at an unprecedented rate. However, this has come with concerns of privacy, efficiency at the expense of resilience, and environmental sustainability, because of the dependence on Cloud vendors such as Google, Amazon, and Microsoft. Community Cloud Computing makes use of the principles of Digital Ecosystems to provide a paradigm for Clouds in the community, offering an alternative architecture for the use cases of Cloud Computing. It is more technically challenging to deal with issues of distributed computing, such as latency, differential resource management, and additional security requirements. However, these are not insurmountable challenges, and with the need to retain control over our digital lives and the potential environmental consequences, it is a challenge we must pursue.

  • Conceptual modeling of Knowledge Based Systems for digital ecosystems

    The agents or entities frequently require intelligence in the form of knowledge based systems(KBS) to support many of their functions. In this Paper we discuss how these KBSs are conceptual are conceptually modeled as a first step towards their development. In particular, we show to effectively model all the different knowledge constructs using an extended definition of an object. The notation used to express this is UML [Booch 2005].

  • Digital Ecosystems: Principles and Semantics

    Digital ecosystems transcend the traditional, rigorously defined, collaborative environments from centralised, distributed or hybrid models into an open, flexible, domain cluster, demand-driven, interactive environment. A digital ecosystem is a newly networked architecture and collaborative environment that addresses the weakness of client-server, peer-to-peer, grid, and Web services. In this paper we provide an explanation of digital ecosystems, their analogy to ecological systems, architecture, swarm intelligence, and comparison to existing networked architecture. We then describe how digital ecosystems can benefit from semantic Web ontologies and rules. Finally, we discuss issues in the collaboration between semantically neighbouring digital ecosystems.
