MASACAD is a multiagent information customization system that adopts the machine-learning paradigm to advise students by mining the Web. In the distributed problem-solving paradigm, systems can distribute among themselves the processes necessary to accomplish a given task. Given the number of problems that distributed processing can address, AI researchers have directed significant effort toward developing specialized problem-solving systems that can interact in their search for a solution. The multiagent-system paradigm embodies this approach.
