The paper by Stijn Verstichel, Femke Ongenae, Bruno Volckaert, Filip De Turck, Bart Dhoedt, and Piet Demeester is titled as An Autonomous Service Platform to Support. Extensive research and technology development for agents need be complemented by means of producing tangible semantic systems. Today, SAS are able to integrate the semantically retrieved knowledge in decision-making systems. It is a challenging affair to produce context-aware decision-making systems using conventional AI, where an intelligent program had no understanding of the context but only processes inputs according to the rules provided in advance. WS are not autonomous, whereas autonomy is one of the main characteristics of agents. Agents are cooperative, and by forming teams, tasks can be executed collaboratively providing more comprehensive services.
