To assist engineers in this around-the-clock monitoring of thousands of measurements, a software agent, the NASA Engineering Shuttle Telemetry Agent (NESTA), was recently developed and deployed at KSC. NESTA operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, sniffing out predefined data patterns of interest and instantly notifying shuttle engineers via email or wireless page.

Intelligent agents have become a solution to assist users in this task since they can retrieve, filter and organize information on behalf of their users. In this paper we present two experiences in the development of interface agents assisting users in Web-based tasks: PersonalSearcher?, a personalized Web searcher, and NewsAgent?, a personalized digital newspaper generator.

This paper explores a particular type of rational agent, a Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) agent. The primary aim of this paper is to integrate (a) the theoretical foundations of BDI agents from both a quantitative decision-theoretic perspective and a symbolic reasoning perspective; (b) the implementations of BDI agents from an ideal theoretical perspective and a more practical perspective; and (c) the building of large-scale applications based on BDI agents.
A BDI agent has beliefs about the world and desires to satisfy, driving it to form intentions to act. An intention is a commitment to perform a plan. A BDI agent is a rational agent (has bounded resources, limited understanding and incomplete knowledge of what happens in the environment it lives).
The goal of the DAML program is to create technologies that will enable software agents to dynamically identify and understand information sources, and to provide interoperability between agents in a semantic manner.
The goals of the MAGMA group (Modelling Autonomous aGents in a Multi-Agent world) are the development of theoretical studies and tools for the simulation of multi-agent systems and the distributed solving of problems, in the perspective of the understanding and the integration of complex systems.
Current work focuses on knowledge representation for sharable engineering knowledge bases and systems, computational environments for modelling physical devices, architectures for adaptive intelligent systems, and expert systems for science and engineering.
The mission of the II Group is to conduct research and develop tools for interactive access to information. Their focus is on improving the process through which a user identifies information sources and interacts with them to answer a particular information need. The II Group will concentrate on methods to discover, digest, summarize, organize, search, and share information.
Le collège SMA a pour mission de favoriser l'échange scientifique au sein de la communauté française travaillant dans le domaine des systèmes multi-agents (SMA), d'offrir un portail ouvert sur toutes les activités de ce domaine de recherche en plein essor et de soutenir les différents événements scientifiques dans le domaine des SMA qui se déroulent en France (conférences, ateliers, groupes de travail, etc.).
i3, the European initiative for intelligent information interfaces, was created in 1997 in order to take a human-centred approach to the exploration of new, visionary interactive systems for people in their everyday activities.
The Agent Society is an international industry and professional organization established to assist in the widespread development and emergence of intelligent agent technologies and markets. It's members consist of leading companies and institutions in the agent field, working together under a non-profit organization aegis.
