Collaborative computing involves human actors and artificial agents interacting in a distributed system to resolve a global problem, often formed dynamically during the computation process. Owing to the open nature of the system and non-cooperative settings, its computations are in general non-algorithmic, i.e. their outcome cannot be calculated in advance by any closed distributed system. Authors advocate for a new processing model, based on exchange of documents implemented as autonomous and mobile agents, providing adaptive and self-aware content as interface units.
