Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5589)


We discuss some basic issues of interactive computations in the framework of rough-granular computing. Among these issues are hierarchical modeling of granule structures and interactions between granules of different complexity. Interactions between granules on which computations are performed are among the fundamental concepts of Wisdom Technology (Wistech). Wistech is encompassing such areas as interactive computations, multiagent systems, cognitive computation, natural computing, complex adaptive and autonomous systems, or knowledge representation and reasoning about knowledge.
