Local Area Augmentation Systems

A LAAS or Local area Augmentation System or LAAS is used to augment Global Positioning Systems when fine, precise detail is required.

LAAS work via ground stations, which are fixed, permanent structures and who know their precise global position - no earthquakes, ground subsidence, or other building movement issues since the position was last worked out.

These are in constant communication with the GPS satellites in orbit.

The Difference between FPS and Lag
Participants in modern internet-controlled, heavily graphics-orientated virtual worlds often confuse fps and lag. When an area cluttered with graphics, and a complex drawing area slows down, all too often people say that the area is laggy, or their Internet connection is not sufficient to handle it. This is patiently untrue, and continued perpetuation of this idea leads people to invest in hardware they do not need, which has no effect on the problem.

The body has no shortage of locations that are accessible for implantation of prosthetic devices, or electronic systems. However, one area is particularly attractive, as it involves minimal surgery, and no skin damage or scarring. This location? The mouth. The disadvantage of using the mouth as a place to anchor or hide devices, is that there is only one logical place to put them ? where the teeth currently sit.

This book serves as a new overview of multiagent systems, which are online systems composed of multiple interacting intelligent agents. It offers a newly seen computer science perspective on multiagent systems, while integrating ideas from operations research, game theory, economics, logic, and even philosophy and linguistics.

The study of multi-agent systems or MAS focuses on systems in which many intelligent agents interact with each other. These agents are considered to be autonomous entities such as software programs or robots.

Essentially a collection of peer reviewed academic works, like all books of this type, Proceedings of the 6th annual conference on Intelligent Tutoring systems is a thousand page tome containing 93 full papers on the development of AI systems, narrative, motivation and emotional control for educational purposes, from 2002.
