A Methodology for Emergent Software

Daniel Sonntag

DFKI Technical Report German Research Center for AI (DFKI ) THESEUS 2 2010.


We present a methodology for software components that suggests adaptations to specific conditions and situations in which the components are used. The emergent software should be able to better function in a specific situation. For this purpose, we survey its background in metacognition and introspection, develop an augmented data mining cycle, and invent an introspective mechanism, a methodology for emergent software. This report is based on emergent software implementations in adaptive information systems (Sonntag, 2010).
