Preview the coming revolution in software intelligence!

  • Foreword by Arthur C. Clarke
A new generation of intelligent software agents is about to arrive, capable of managing and organizing information, recognizing personal tastes, and making increasingly important decisions on behalf of their owners. The agent revolution represents an extraordinary opportunity for business and technical people who understand it. Intelligent Software Agents is the first comprehensive up-to-the-minute guide to this quickly maturing technology, its applications, and-above all-its implications.

  • How today's agents work-and how they're different from their over-hyped predecessors
  • Top agent applications in healthcare, finance, retail, media, government, and more
  • Supercharging Web sites and e-commerce with agent technology
  • The key players in the software industry and academia
  • Standards and their role in agent development
Discover how agent technology is becoming increasingly adaptable, mobile, transparent, accountable, rugged, user-centered, and autonomous. Understand the challenges facing agent developers, including security, privacy, legal issues, control, and performance. Then, preview the future-including R&D on multi-agent systems, and on endowing agents with emotions, attitudes, culture, and multilingual expertise. Whether you're a business decision-maker or IT professional, Intelligent Software Agents is your guide to the future!
