Agents

  • An agent is anything that can be viewed as perceiving its environment through sensors and acting upon that environment through its effectors to maximize progress towards its goals.

  • Human agent: eyes, ears, and other organs for sensors;

  • hands, legs, mouth, and other body parts for actuators

  • Robotic agent: cameras and infrared range finders for sensors; various motors for actuators

Agents interact with environments through sensors and effectors

Intelligent agents on the internet and web

Intelligent Agent

  • Intelligent Agent (IA)

  • An intelligent agent (IA) is a self-contained, autonomous software module that could perform certain tasks on behalf of its users with some degree of independence or autonomy, and in so doing, employ some knowledge or representation of the user's goals or desires.

  • The term agent is derived from the concept of agency, referring to employing someone to act on your behalf.

Characteristics of Intelligent Agents

  • Autonomy or empowerment

    • An agent that takes initiative and exercises control over its own actions have these characteristics:

      • Goal oriented

      • Collaborative

      • Flexible

      • Self-starting

Dept. of I&CT, MIT, Manipal


Intelligent agents on the internet and web

  • Communication (interactivity)

    • Many agents are designed to interact with other agents, humans, or software programs

  • Automating repetitive tasks

    • An agent is designed to perform narrowly defined tasks, which it can do over and over without getting bored or sick or going on strike

Dept. of I&CT, MIT, Manipal


Intelligent agents on the internet and web

  • Reactivity

    • Agents perceive their environment and respond in a timely fashion to changes that occur in it

  • Proactiveness (or persistence)

    • Agents are able to exhibit goal-directed behavior by taking initiative

  • Temporal continuity

    • Agents are continuously running processes that can be temporarily inactive while waiting for something to occur

Intelligent agents on the internet and web

Why Intelligent Agents?

• Information overload

– A major value of intelligent agents is that they are able to assist in searching through all the data

– Intelligent agents save time by making decisions about what is

relevant to the user on its behalf

• Reasons for the success of agents

– Decision support

– Frontline decision support

– Repetitive office activities

– Mundane personal activity

– Search and retrieval

– Domain experts

Intelligent agents on the internet and web

Classes of intelligent agents

• Simple Reflex agents

• Model-based reflex agents

• Goal-based agents

• Utility-based agents

Intelligent agents on the internet and web

Simple Reflex Agents

Simple reflex agents acts only on the basis of the current percept. The agent function is based on the condition-action rule: if condition then action rule

Dept. of I&CT, MIT, Manipal


Intelligent agents on the internet and web

Function REFLEX-VACUUM-AGENT ([location, status])

returns action

if status = Dirty then return Suck

else if location = A then return Right

else if location = B then return Left

Vacuum-cleaner world

  • Percepts: location and contents, e.g., [A, Dirty]

  • Actions: Left, Right, Suck.

Model-Based Reflex Agents

A model-based reflex agent keeps track of the current state of the world using an internal model. It then chooses an action in the same way as the reflex agent.

Dept. of I&CT, MIT, Manipal


Intelligent agents on the internet and web

Function REFLEX-AGENT-WITH-STATE (percept) returns an action

static: state, a description of the current world state

rules, a set of condition-action rules

action, the most recent action, initially none

state  UPDATE-STATE (state, action, percept)

rule  RULE-MATCH(state, rules)

action  RULE-ACTION[rule]

return action

Goal-Based Agents

Goal-based agents are model-based agents which store information regarding situations that are desirable. This allows the agent a way to choose among multiple possibilities, selecting the one which reaches a goal state.

Dept. of I&CT, MIT, Manipal


Intelligent agents on the internet and web

Utility-Based Agents

Goal-based agents only distinguish between goal states and non-goal states. It is possible to define a measure of how desirable a particular state is. This measure can be obtained through the use of a utility function which maps a state to a measure of the utility of the state.

CONCLUSION

Intelligent agents on the Internet and Web will grow dramatically in the next few years and they would be put into use in a variety of new applications and services. The following quotes aptly highlight the prospects of intelligent agents.

“Agents are here to stay ... because of their diversity, their

wide range of applicability and the broad spectrum of

companies investing in them.”

“In the future, it [agent] is going to be the only way to search

the Internet, because no matter how much, better the Internet

is going to be organised, it can’t keep pace with information.”
