EU Project Proposal 


 MIURST Project:




Project CIMA , Computer Intelligent Managerial Advisors for High Risk Decision
      Support. CIMA is focused on reinforcement of management intelligence, it is a scientific-technology
      collaboration of ENEA and IBS-PAN (Institute of Systems Research, Polish Academy of Science).

      The project has been activated in frame of the Polish-Italian Bilateral Scientific Cooperation
       (The Government Italo-Polish Commission: Scientific cooperation is based on the Italian - Polish 
      agreement signed 27/11/1960).
      The project has been  defined in the area of  newest systemic cross-disciplinary socio-cognitive
      approaches, always more frequently requested for the solutions of complex real world   problems
      of the modern global information society on its way to a sustainable development.

      The CIMA project deals with  the integrated modeling of distributed reasoning processes in 
      the managerial decision-making under uncertain high-risk constrains.
      The cooperation is a research platform for the expected common participation in EU or other 
      international projects based on socio-cognitive engineering and validation of methodologies,
      models and technologies for multipurpose managerial IDSSs ( Intelligent Decision Support 
     Systems ) for high-risk decisions.The cooperation includes common organization of sc. meeting 
     and promotions of new research initiatives.
      Preselected Polish business organizations were considered as test-case end-users and the 
      domain experts.

      Main initiatives:
          INTELLIGENCE  in conjunction with the BIS 2002 Conference.

Project HAM - Human Agent cognitive Modeling (since 1999):

      This is a  long-term  ENEA's scientific cooperation with  ECONA (Interuniversity Center for the
       Research on Cognitive Processing in Natural  and Artificial Systems),  Rome.
       HAM objective is a theoretical and experimental validation of methodological frames for the 
       cognitive modeling of a human agent mind (user-modeling) and an artificial cognitive advisor for the 
       conceptual cooperation between humans and intelligent (or proto-intelligent) machines.
       The cooperation iincludes  promotion of common  scientific events: seminars, workshops, 
       and is based on a synergy of research.
       The research effort is oriented  towards the modeling of the abstract cognitive/mind functions and, in   

        consequence,  should lead to their computer simulations, understanding and the development of

       highly-intelligent  Decision Support Systems (IDSS). 

      The methodology framework employed is initially based on the TOGA meta-theory and the IPK
      cognitive agent architecture  [IPK Cognitive Agent prototype] .

The Global Disaster Information Network  - a participation in the organization of 
      American-italian  G-DIN  challenger - for the GDIN2002 Conference, June 18-22, 2002,
      Rome Italy.   (Sponsor: Dr.  Raniero Guerra, Director General,  International Relations, Instituto Superiore di 

      Sanita, Italy). 

    This activity is a consequence of the previous long-term ENEA's MINDES program and 
    a precedent participation in the  GEMINI initiatives. The modeling of G-DIN domains and 
    interventions require strong systemic socio-cognitive engineering methodologica

  Mobile Learning and  e-Learning Initiatives

     m-Learning< e-Learning < Distance Learning < Instruction 

     - FAD  (Formazione A Distanza): The  practical aspects of this field are managed in ENEA by 
         Anna Moreno together with  Usability Lab ( F.Fontana)  This activity is focused on (  e-Learning <    

       Distance  Learning < Instruction )
       - One of HID Group interests is focused on : reinforcement of intelligence by e-learning 
         technologies and  methods, investigation and development of student and tutor generic cognitive
         reasoning models for the definition of e-learning/instruction  strategy and  for the design of 
         e-Learning Intelligent Support Systems (see also the  EMIR proposal).
       - Theoretical base for e-Learning and m-learning is  the IPK methodological frame.  
          A cooperative e-learning  and distributed m-learning based on the TOGA meta-theory conceptual

          frameworks should enable to construct active gnosis (==IPK*) structures and domain-oriented
          hypotheses of learning strategies on the various  IPK  meta-levels. 
          Moreover,  proper  inquiry strategy may provide an opportunity to  teach students of a 
          meta-cognitive thinking, which in turn  should improve reflection, monitoring, and exploratory 
          controlling of their own cognitive learning  processes.

  (*)  gnosis ( in TOGA) is defined as: information or preferences or knowledge or all together and it is always  

       related to a  preselected domain/(s) of activity of a cognitive agent.
