      The Net As One Giant Brain
      Well, not really a brain, more like a power grid. But, its a first
      step towards a world wide mind. A ZDNet article. "These companies
      suggest that peer-to-peer networking technologies will have a much greater
      influence on the Internet's infrastructure than file-sharing technologies
      like Napster and Gnutella have had. Napster may have shaken up the music
      industry, they say, but it's just kids' stuff compared with a system
      that instantly puts trillions of processor cycles at anyone's fingertips.".

      JADE version 2.0 is out
      Version 2.0 of the Java Agent Development framework is out. This
      new version complies with the FIPA 2000 standard.

      Microsoft .NET whitepaper
      As the article states "The fundamental idea behind Microsoft .NET
      is that the focus is shifting from individual Web sites or devices
      connected to the Internet, to constellations of computers, devices and
      services that work together" and it "will help drive a transformation in the
      Internet that will see HTML-based presentation augmented by programmable
      XML-based information. ". They are predicting many devices talking
      effectively to each other using XML. Is this a multiagent system?

      Free Riding on Gnutella
      A web paper by Eytan Adar and Bernardo A. Huberman where they show
      how the Gnutella system is mostly composed of free-riders, leading to a
      "digital tragedy of the commons". Not a surprising results, but the
      details are interesting. I found this on slashdot which also carries the
      usual discussion.

      "Powerful java-based, agent-oriented software engineering platform
      with visual SDK that handles complex software engineering problems
      including natural language interface design." They claim to have build a
      platform where intelligent independed agents coordinate to solve problems.
      Its called the Adaptive Agent Software Architecture Platform (AASAP).

      Workshops on agent technology
      The University of Maine and the Agent Institute are holding a
      series of 6 workshops between September 2000 and June 2001. These meetings
      are designed to introduce agent based technology and current research
      to the development and industrial/commercial markets while at the same
      time introducing researchers to their market partners.

      Special Issue for Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence
      The purpose of this Special Issue is to present techniques, based
      on computational logic (CL), for reasoning about multi-agent systems in a
      formal way. The approaches as well as being formal must make a
      significant contribution to the practice of multi-agent systems. Papers due 31
      January 2001.

        Colored Trails Project
        Colored Trails (CT) is a test-bed for investigating the types of
        decision-making that arise in task settings where the key interactions
        are among goals (of individuals or of groups), tasks required to
        accomplish those goals, and resources. The CT architecture allows
        games to be played by groups comprising people, computer agents, or
        heterogeneous mixes of people and computers. The purpose of the CT
        framework is to enable to design, learn and evaluate players'
        decision-making behavior as well as group dynamics in settings of
        varying complexity.

        German DAI Group
        The non-profit German Special Interest Group (SIG) on Distributed
        Artificial Intelligence is concerned with the representation,
        promotion and coordination of the field of Distributed AI and
        multiagent systems. Being part of the Special Interest Group on
        Artificial Intelligence of the German Informatics Society
        (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V.), its activities are focused on
        research, teaching and education, and industry.

        Game Theory and Poker
        A Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist has demonstrated
        that you don't necessarily need to know much about poker to create
        a computer program that can play a winning hand of Texas
        Hold'Em. A knowledge of game theory, not the specialized expertise
        of a human poker player, is at the heart of the poker robot called GS1
        developed by Tuomas Sandholm, director of Carnegie Mellon's
        Agent-Mediated Electronic Marketplaces Lab, and graduate student
        Andrew Gilpin.

        Jobs at University of Southampton
        Applications are invited for three Senior Research
        Assistant/Research Fellow posts in the Intelligence, Agents,
        Multimedia Group, in the School of Electronics and Computer Science at
        the University of Southampton. The School is the largest of its kind
        in the UK and was awarded the top grade of 5* for both Computer
        Science and Electronics in the 2001 national assessment of research in
        UK universities.
