Abstract:

Work developed a tight integration between LOCATEs ability to track user activity and a new LOCATE Agent Network whose ultimate goal is to help ease the data entry burden for LOCATE users. A society of agents was created using the JATLite development environment and KQML communication protocols. An extension to this contract generalised the LOCATE work to the area of manning reduction on naval vessels. Agents conduct periodic searches of the Internet using the same search and filtering techniques. Future work on LOCATE will use retrieved information to extend LOCATEs internal, intelligent-aiding support for data entry. Future work on the Manning Agent Network will extend the functionality of its filtering agents and refine its search strategies.
