ITTC Project

Intelligent Agents and Multiagent Systems

Project Award Date: 0000-00-00


We are developing a Java-based, graphical, robust agent tool-set that allows the easy and quick implementation of agents for a variety of applications. The tool-set implements the basic characteristics of agents: autonomy, reaction, pro-action, persistence, and learning. We are also developing Web-based tools to allow the agents to be implemented remotely over the Internet, and a set of performance metrics and metric presentation tools.

The tool-set will be tested on three domains of resident expertise: information retrieval from heterogeneous sources, data mining, and image databases. Currently we are finishing the implementation of agent-based data mining of an extensive S&P 500 financial dataset.

Our agent tool-set uses KQML as the preferred agent language and CORBA for agent communication.


Project Sponsors

Primary Sponsor(s): ITTC

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
