Abstract:

The major areas of research described in this report include the contribution to the Knowledge Query and Manipulation Language KQML specification under the DARPA- sponsored Knowledge Sharing Initiative and the developing of a scaleable and an efficient implementation of information system components for ontological translation and effective cache-based implementations. This effort focused primarily upon developing Intelligent Agent Integration Technology and demonstrating it within distributed agent systems. This effort was a joint universityindustry project in which technology development was supported by several university participants. The integration technology developed is based on KQML, a language and protocol intended to support interoperability among intelligent agents in a distributed application. The technical scope is the coordination of multiple intelligent agents which must communicate with one another. This report presents the basic accomplishments achieved which include software systems and associated documentation for communication among multi-agent systems using the Knowledge Query and Manipulation Language KQML performance metrics and instrumentation for intelligent agent communication and Imowledge base access to databases which highlight performance issues, aspects and potential improvements for large-scale architectures and study of ontological mediation issues and research.
