My group at Georgia Tech is dedicated to creating wearable agents. By necessity, our work combines on-body perception, user modeling, and human-computer interfaces. The Web site,, demonstrates our first attempt at such an agent. The prototypes on the site predict the user's next location, perceive the user's availability, and help schedule an appointment based on a conversation with another researcher. The system is an effort to demonstrate how to make aspects of cell phone use more socially graceful through a wearable agent. As of this writing, an agent system that integrates all the demonstrated functionality is too imprecise and requires too many resources to be practical, but each perception subsystem described is operational in the laboratory.
