KNOWLEDGE DOMAINS


Almende finds its inspiration in nature where complex processes often occur without the need of a central entity coordinating them. Self-organization is in fact the driving force behind many natural phenomena proving that simple local rules may provide effective solutions to global problems.

Our goal is to create the infrastructure and the tools to allow human beings to profit from 'self-organized inspired'-solutions in their daily life. In order to achieve this goal, we have identified four main areas for our research and development.



- Internet of Things

- Agent technology

- Bio-inspired systems

- Visual analytics


These four areas complement each other and they all contribute to our mission. In particular, the Internet of Things represents the connection to the device realms; the agent technology is what allows devices to communicate with each other and with the users; the bio-inspired systems are the basis for the self-organized and 'intelligent' algorithms we use for coordination; the visual analytics adds a practical way to visualize and understand the behaviour of the whole system.
