Intelligent, Adaptive and Reasoning Technologies

Book Description

The advent of the World Wide Web has sparked renewed interest in the area of intelligent information technologies. There is a growing interest in developing intelligent technologies that allow users to accomplish complex tasks in Web-centric environments with relative ease, utilizing such technologies as intelligent agents, distributed computing in heterogeneous environments, and computer supported collaborative work. Intelligent, Adaptive and Reasoning Technologies: New Developments and Applications is a comprehensive collection of work from researchers in related fields such as information systems, distributed AI, intelligent agents, and collaborative work that explores and discusses various aspects of design and development of intelligent technologies. This book provides a forum for academics and practitioners to explore research issues related to not only the design, implementation and deployment of intelligent systems and technologies, but also economic issues and organizational impact.
