      Peer-to-Peer Working Group
      They are a consortium for advancement of infrastructure standards
      for peer-to-peer computing, i.e., the sharing of computer resources and
      services by direct exchange. Their goal is to develop infrastructure
      standards to enable peer-to-peer computing everywhere. It is sponsored by
      Intel, and this Salon article tries to explain why Intel might be
      interested in peer-to-peer.

      Agents 2001 Software Track
      If you have constructed an agent, multi-agent system, or a
      sophisticated agent component, there is a special track at Autonomous Agents
      2001 designed for you. The accepted software systems will be
      demonstrated at the conference. Abstracts are due 9 October 2000.

      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.".

        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.

        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.
