Calling All Agents, Where Are You?
Conference Proceeding Article
We believe the next step in the application of agent technology to the Internet is the massive population of the Internet with software agents functioning in a wide range of capacities: information filtering, information brokering, commerce, negotiation, and so on. In such an environment, a means to effectively locate relevant agents for relevant tasks is indispensable. In this paper, we examine issues in the design and implementation of a `directory agent' that store meta-information of other agents. In particular, we present results from our work on building a scalable directory agent for a large-scale, distributed agent-based e-commerce system (the Abecos project).
