ABSTRACT Most works on norms have investigated how norms are regulated using institutional mechanisms. Very few works have focused
on how an agent may infer the norms of a society without the norm being explicitly given to the agent. This paper describes
how an agent can make use of the proposed norm identification architecture to identify norms. This paper explains how an agent
using this architecture identifies one type of norm, an obligation norm. To this end, the paper proposes an Obligation Norm
Inference (ONI) algorithm which makes use of association rule mining approach to identify obligation norms.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we present an augmented reality (AR) application for industrial building acceptance. Building acceptance is the process of comparing as-planned documentation with the factory that was actually built. A self-supported mobile AR device, the AR-planar, is used to facilitate this comparison by overlaying 3D models on top of a video image. The suitability of this approach is assessed using an expert heuristic in a real factory, and furthermore the usability of the AR-planar in comparison to other AR systems was examined in a complementary user study.

    ABSTRACT: Most works on norms have investigated how norms are regulated using institutional mechanisms which assume that agents know the norms of the society they are situated in. Few research works have focused on how an agent may infer the norms of a society without the norm being explicitly given to the agent. These works do not address how an agent can identify conditional norms. In this paper we describe a mechanism that an agent can use to identify conditional norms which makes use of our previously proposed norm identification framework. Using park littering as an example, we show how conditional norms can be identified. In addition, we discuss the experimental results on the dynamic addition, modification and deletion of conditional norms.
