2002 Connection science  
We identify related research in multi-agent autonomous architectures and single agent human-computer interaction systems. We describe our architecture design for human-software agent groups.  ...  An important aspect of interaction among groups of humans and software agents is supporting collaboration among these heterogeneous agents while they operate remotely and communicate asynchronously.  ...  Acknowledgement We want to acknowledge the support of Dr Michael Shafto, the manager of the Human-Centered Computing topic in NASA's Intelligent Systems Program, under which this work was done.  ...

Agent-based support for interactive search in conceptual software engineering design

Christopher L. Simons, Ian C. Parmee
2008 Proceedings of the 10th annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '08  
This paper reports initial findings of the application of software agents in support of an interactive, user-centered conceptual software design scenario.  ...  In addition, agents and the human designer appear to interact as cooperative "team players", jointly influencing the evolutionary algorithm based search.  ...  CONCLUSION The results achieved with the case study suggest that the application of search agents provides efficient and effective support of the human designer in conceptual software design scenarios.  ...

A dynamically reconfigurable system based on workflow and service agents

Jian Cao, Jie Wang, Shensheng Zhang, Minglu Li
2004 Engineering applications of artificial intelligence  
As a consequence, services and service-oriented software architecture will play fundamental roles in autonomic computing, which promotes the concept of self-management for software systems.  ...  In the framework, a service agent represents an intelligent service broker that offers a self-managed and integrated service to respond to the requests from the environment adaptively.  ...  While service-oriented architectural might play a fundamental role in autonomic computing, more specifically, in the support of flexibility and selfreconfiguration of a software system, current service  ...
