Agent Foundations Classes
are designed to make the construction of the many types of agents
a semi-automated process, in order to extend their distribution,
and thus increase the usefulness and effectivity of already-existing
agents. For download, click

to the WWW consortium (W3C) Working Group on Web Service Architecture.
Sycara of Carnegie Mellon University has been awarded the
ACM SIGART Autonomous Agents Research Award for 2002. Dr. Sycara
has made significant contributions to a number of subareas of
agent research, including agent architectures, middle agents,
and multi-agent negotiation.
Sycara was elected a Fellow of the American Association
for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) for her "significant contributions
to case-based reasoning, autonomous agents, and multi-agent
systems." One of a small select group of individuals elected
each year, Sycara was recognized at the Fellows Dinner on July
30, during AAAI 2002 in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.
