TRANSCENDING TAXONOMIES WITH GENERIC AND AGENT-BASED E-HUB ARCHITECTURES

Abstract

If effectively utilized, modern technologies such as ontologies and software agents hold the potential to inform the design of the next generation of E-Hubs. In terms of their evolution, we argue that taxonomies as tools hold the danger of stifling innovation as they may implicitly impose boundaries on the problem domain. We proceed to use one that is well-referenced in the literature and identify a number of issues that can be seen as limiting factors, proposing a generic and agent-mediated architecture that holds the potential of addressing them.
