Agents and Their Cities

Patricia Charlton, David Bonnefoy, Nicolas Lhuillier

In this paper we look at the developments of agent technology and the challenges, which will enable agent technology to play a key role in the Internet space. This paper describes the design of high-level interoperable agent services through the concept of Agentcities, its motivations and drivers. It introduces the different initiatives, which aim at creating an open network of agent platforms, in which complex agent services can be developed, deployed and tested. Finally, the key challenges to be addressed to make this initiative a success are evaluated – that of - creating high-level interoperability of heterogeneous services in a dynamic environment to enable large-scale access to e-services within agent environments.

Keywords: Multi-Agent Systems, Ontologies
