Talk Abstract
Transportable Information Agents: Practice and Theory

George Cybenko, Dartmouth College

Agent Tcl is a transportable agent programming system developed at Dartmouth. The system allows complete process migration across architectures and uses a variety of messaging constructs. Agent Tcl is being used by Lockheed Martin, Siemens and various others to handle complex distributed information processing tasks. In addition to describing the main features of Agent Tcl, I will present some results dealing with mathematical models describing the control of information processing systems. Those results use simple constructs from stochastic control and information theory.

Joint work with R. Gray, K. Moizumi, D. Rus and D. Kotz.

See http://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~agent/ for more details and information about downloading the system.
