Research interests

Professor Anne Håkansson research lies within Computer science with the focus on Artificial Intelligence, and reasoning strategies, for different application areas, among others e-business, environmental impact assessment, and context. Especially, Håkansson has conducted research within Knowledge-based systems and Knowledge Base modelling, Reasoning, Graphic Representation, Visualisation, Visual Programming, Declarative Programming, Multi-agent systems, and Meta-agents.

Currently Professor Håkansson conducts research within Cyber-Physcial Systems, Reasoning and Negotiation in Computer Systems, Sustainability and  Artificial Intelligence for combining senses. This includes Event-driven algorithm for searching in network, Smart cities and Smart sociteies Ontologies, and Contexts.

Volatile Multiple Smart Systems, VoLM2s (for stationary and mobile systems, e.g. CPS, IoT): 

  • Next generation of smart systems – multiple connected systems that are only connected in some situations or for some purposes. 
  • Volatile – the situation decides the incorporated systems – data and information exchange is lost when systems are out of the communication sphere.
  • Smart everywhere: Collaborations between different systems, everywhere; Co-operations to perform complex tasks
  • Complex and situation-dependent data
  • Generalize in heterogeneous environments

The systems are a part of the Volatile Distributed Multi Smart Network.
