The World Wide Wisdom Web (W4) (or Wisdom Web) and Autonomy Oriented Computing (AOC) were proposed and advocated by Liu et al. and have been recognized, in the fields of WWW, AI, and AAMAS, as promising directions of research in problems that are heavily dominated by large scale, distribution, connectivity, interactivity, and redundancy [1,7,8,2,4].
