Abstract

The adoption of agents as utile companions faces the problem of conciliating the development of complex and intelligent functionalities with the requirements of autonomy mobility and adaptability. Our main focus will be on the agents adaptability. A hybrid agent architecture approach is proposed where a static component, which resides at the user's host and includes most of the intelligence and decision support capabilities, is complemented by a mobile component that is aimed at interacting with other agents. Some adaptation strategies, based on classical and fuzzy methodologies, are also discussed using as background scenario a trading market competitive environment with buyer and seller agents interacting in it.
