Dynamic Web Service Integration

   Abstract

Various papers and approaches have similar titles but few actually mean "dynamic" in the full sense. We describe what fully dynamic web service integration would be, why it is needed, and how it would be possible. In particular, we describe some of the ways in which techniques common to the general domain of "AI Planning" can be used to extend and embrace the industrial web service standards. In this talk, we do not address the issues of trust, contracts, level of service, and common semantics, but claim that those issues are solvable, are being addressed by major efforts, and must be resolved for web services to be more than just good software engineering

   Bio for Charles Petrie

Dr. Petrie is Sr. Research Scientist in the Stanford Computer Science Department and the Director Research Seminars of the Stanford Networking Research Center. Dr. Petrie’s current research is the extension of XML-based web services so that their composition can be revised in real time, reacting to problems and contingencies in pursuit of complex goals, using computational logic, working with the Logic Group headed by Prof. Michael Genesereth. Charles Petrie was previously a Sr. Research Scientist at the Stanford Center for Design Research (CDR). At the CDR, he led the ProcessLink project, sponsored by DARPA and industry, to develop Internet-based concurrent engineering technology. One byproduct of this project was the now widely used JATLite Java agent infrastructure. Prior to Stanford, Dr. Petrie performed research in AI and E-commerce at MCC in Austin, Texas. He has a B.S. in Mathematics and a M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science and has published extensively in the field of knowledge representation, truth maintenance, constraint satisfaction, and inferencing architectures. Dr. Petrie has organized many conferences and workshops. He is the founder, and Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, of __IEEE Internet Computing_, and on the Editorial Board of _Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems_. Most recently, he was a Guest Editor of the _IEEE Internet Computing_ special issue "Business Processes on the Web", Jan/Feb 2004/
