TOWARDS A GENERIC AND CONFIGURABLE MODEL OF AN ELECTRONIC INFORMER TO ASSIST THE EVALUATION OF AGENT-BASED INTERACTIVE SYSTEMS

Abstract

This paper presents a generic and configurable model of an electronic informer to assist the evaluation for agent-based interactive systems. In order to propose this model, the current state of the art concerning architectures used for traditional interactive systems is presented, along with that for agent-based interactive systems. In this article, we propose an agent-oriented architecture that is considered as being mixed (it is both functional and structural). By using this architecture as a basis, we propose a generic and configurable model of an evaluation tool called “electronic informer” which assist evaluators in analysing and evaluating interactive systems of this architecture.
