      My Agent Will Call Your Agent
      An article from Software Development magazine about the differences
      between components and agents and how "Intelligent components that
      autonomously represent user's interests and communicate
      via XML are the answer to a fundamental e-commerce need: flexible,
      extensible systems.".

        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.
