Interactive Computations: Toward Risk Management in Interactive Intelligent Systems

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8251)


Understanding the nature of interactions is regarded as one of the biggest challenges in projects related to complex adaptive systems. We discuss foundations for interactive computations in Interactive Intelligent Systems (IIS), developed in the Wistech program and used for behavior modeling of complex systems. We emphasize the key role of risk management in problem solving by IIS. The considerations are supported by real-life projects concerning, e.g., medical diagnosis and therapy support, control of an unmanned helicopter, algorithmic trading or fire commander decision support.
