Talk:Intelligent agents

Just a few concerns:

  1. Shouldn't this be singular? ie. intelligent agent.
  2. What link is there between this page and Artificial intelligence agent?

I think the pages could be merged? Kiefer 16:01, 16 Sep 2004 (UTC)


I agree about the merge, but I'm not sure how to go about it; the Artificial intelligence agent page will need reworked into different sections, since it focuses on "agent environments," and also mentions "software, hardware, and otherwise" classes of agents. This article focuses on software "bot-type" agents. I added a merge template. --Schultz.Ryan 03:26, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Where is the Bibiliography??


I disagree. Intelligent Agents are based on a given set of rules. Artificial Intelligence implies the ability to learn. CCollins


Some references on matter would be appreciated. ----Luigi B 21:34, 01 Jun 2005 (UTC)


I agree as both articles cover closely related material.. BUT they should be merged under "Intelligent Agents". Intelligent agents are generally defined as agents employing AI methodologies while the term Artificial intelligence agent isn't used anywhere in academia. In other words, we should stick to terminology actually employed.

Also I'd like to question the validity of the material on the page at the moment.

The term artifical intelligence agent is made-up (1 hit on Google). ratio of pluralization= 2:1; which seems ordinary. merge it into this and move to intelligent agent. -- 70.29.131.204 04:20, 18 August 2005 (UTC)


Intelligent agents are definitely not limited to a given set of rules but are as intelligent implies able to learn & adapt. The bots discribed here, however are not necessarily intelligent, but rather applies to software agents in general, and this article is suggested to be merged as such. A new atricle correctly titled intelligent agent discusses the prerequisites for IA systems. --moxon 09:15, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

"i think that when consider Open System it will lead to a new set of rules - a infinity set of rules - then there is need of put a limit on a numer of rules, and consider an order on this rules. the greatest rule will define the least rule that will be used. this is like free will action."
