      The Energy Web
      A Wired article on the future of energy distribution. "the digital
      networks will be called upon to remake the grid in their own image. By
      embedding sensors, solid-state controllers, and intelligent agents
      throughout this new supply chain, the meter and the monthly bill will be
      swapped out for something more robust, adaptive, interconnected, and alive: a
      humming, real-time, interactive energy marketplace." Appears in the
      July 2001 issue.

      Understanding Agent Systems
      This book presents a formal approach to dealing with agents and
      agent systems using the Z specification language to establish an accessible
      and unified formal account of agent systems and inter-agent
      relationships. The approach provides precise and unambiguous meanings for common
      concepts and terms for agent systems, allows for the description of
      alternative agent models and architectures, and serves as a foundation for
      subsequent development of increasingly refined agent concepts. Edited by
      Mark D'Inverno and Michael Luck. Published in 2001.

      OpenCybele
      OpenCybele is the open source release of the Cybele(TM) agent
      infrastructure developed by Intelligent Automation Inc. It is a runtime
      environment built on the top of the Java 2 platform for control and execution
      of agents. It adopts a service-layered architecture promoting
      plug-n-play capability of agent services, such as, Concurrency management, Event
      management, Communication and Timer event generation. It also promotes
      an Activity Centric Programming (ACP) paradigm for coding agents. The ACP
      paradigm encourages encapsulation of the agent's autonomous behavior as
      a group of activities. The activities can be coded using the core
      Activity Oriented Programming Interfaces (AOPIs) that are provided as a part
      of the OpenCybele kernel. The AOPIs in turn use the published interfaces
      of different agent services. Other features include location
      independent communication, publish-subscribe based messaging, synchronous,
      asynchronous, broadcast, and point-to-point messaging.

      Trust and Deception in Virtual Societies
      Edited by Cristiano Castelfranchi and Yao-Hua Tan, this book
      provides analyses by various researchers of the different types of trust that
      are needed for various tasks, such as facilitating on-line
      collaboration, building virtual communities and network organizations, and even the
      design of effective and user-friendly human�computer interfaces. The
      book has a multi-disciplinary character providing theoretical models of
      trust and deception, empirical studies, and practical solutions for
      creating trust in electronic commerce and multi-agent systems. 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.
