Overview
The PLEIADES Project has two overriding goals: 1) to develop distributed agent-based architectures that are composed of negotiating and learning agents, and 2) to apply these architectures to everyday activity management and information problems. To meet these goals, we have developed a number of software agent systems, including agents for managing personal calendars, web agents that provide guided tours of websites, and a visitor hosting agent system that manages the process of connecting faculty members with campus visitors who share similar interests.

Our approach is committed to developing machine learning methods that will endow personal software agents with the ability to customize automatically to the needs of their users.
