    The paper discusses Aria, an interface agent designed to assist users by preactively looking for opportunities for image annotation and retrieval. While it does not completely automate the image annotation and retrieval process, Aria dramatically reduces user interface overhead, which can lead to better annotated image libraries and fewer missed opportunities for image use.

    Internet appliances were conceived as simpler cousins of the PC with no hard drive and a minimal operating system that permitted almost instant bootup. Consumers could access their applications, such as e-mail and appointment calendars, via a Web browser. The simple browser interface was expected to make appliances more popular with technophobes. The paper discusses the three primary types of Inte... View full abstract»

    Deploying intelligent agents to do peoples' bidding in environments ranging from Internet marketplaces to Mars has received much attention. Exactly what an agent is and in what sense a computational agent can behave intelligently remain the subject of considerable debate. However, most would agree that coordination, an agent's fundamental capability to decide on its own actions in the context of t... View full abstract»

    Like preterraformed Mars, cyberspace currently offers a lonely, dangerous, and relatively impoverished environment for software agents. Although promoted as collaborative, agents do not easily sustain rich, long-term, peer-to-peer relationships, let alone any semblance of meaningful community involvement. Rather than just building smarter and stronger agents, researchers must transform the wastela... View full abstract»

    Distributed mission-critical environments employ a mixture of hard and soft real-time applications that usually expect a guaranteed range of quality of service (QoS). These applications have different levels of criticality and varied structures ranging from periodic independent tasks to distributed pipelines or event-driven modules. The underlying distributed system must evolve and adapt to the hi... View full abstract»

    Building software agents that can survive in the harsh environment of a popular computer game (Quake II) provides fresh insight into the study of artificial intelligence (AI). Our Quakebot uses Soar-an engine for making and executing decisions-as its underlying AI engine for controlling a single player. We chose Soar as our AI engine because our real research goal is to understand and develop gene... View full abstract»
