Springer-Verlag GmbH, Jan 1, 1998 - Computers - 326 pages
This methodical presentation of intelligent software agents is based on a series of case studies. The authors first present the foundations, then provide a description of the influences of artificial intelligence, networks and communications systems. The relevant development methods and tools are described next, followed by the application areas for intelligent software agents. Examples are provided to offer the reader descriptions of individual software agents. The treatment balances equally the foundations and the practical implementation of intelligent software agents.
