Autonomous Agents on the Web Community Group created

The Autonomous Agents on the Web Community Group has been launched:


This community group is interested in the design of Web-based
Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) for the deployment of world-wide hybrid
communities of people and artificial agents on the Web. 

Our aim is to design a new class of Web-based MAS that are aligned with
the Web Architecture to inherit the properties of the Web (world-wide,
open, long-lived, etc.), and are also transparent and accountable to
support acceptance by people.

We are especially interested in the use of Linked Data and Semantic Web
standards for weaving a hypermedia fabric that enables uniform
interaction among heterogeneous entities: people, artificial agents,
devices, digital services, knowledge repositories, etc. We refer to this
new class of Web-based MAS as Hypermedia MAS (hMAS).

This community group brings together experts actively contributing to
advances in autonomous agents and MAS, the Web Architecture and the Web
of Things, Semantic Web and Linked Data, and Web standards in general —
as well as any other areas that could contribute to this approach for
distributed intelligence on the Web.
