Book Description Review Software Agents isn't packed with sample code or programming tips. Instead, it contains a thought-provoking series of essays by industry luminaries on a hot topic at the horizon of programming: building 'intelligent' agents. The book's various authors explore different aspects of agents: How will they interact with users? How will they communicate with each other? What are the technical requirements of agents?
