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.
