USING AGENT PLATFORMS FOR SERVICE COMPOSITION

Agostino Poggi, Michele Tomaiuolo, Paola Turci

Abstract

Autonomous software agents and semantic web technologies promise to pave the way for really dynamic and adaptive distributed applications. The Agenticities project is the first effort to create a large and open society, where collaborating and competing peers are able to interact effectively. This paper describes the services deployed on the Agentcities network, both at the infrastructure and application level, and shows how they can be successfully used for the intelligent and dynamic composition of simple services provided by different providers into more complex ones.
