 Software Agents  
By Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, 1997, 480 pp
The essays in Software Agents, by leading researchers and developers of agent-based systems, address both the state-of-the-art of agent technology and its likely evolution in the near future

 Agents At Large  
Agents At Large is an introduction to field of building secure realms where mobile agents can flourish and do useful work. The book describes how agents can efficiently travel the network and solve problems on a distant host.

 Readings in Agents  
By Michael N. Huhns and Munindar P. Singh, 1997, 520 pp
Huhns and Singh have drawn on research communities in AI, databases, distributed computing, and programming languages to assemble the most comprehensive overview of the agent world available. The editors add a summary of the field and its terminology, history, and major issues, together with introductions to each of the thematic chapters and discussions of the significance and context of the individual papers.

 Computerized Integrated Knowledge Based System for High-Performance Concrete: An Overview  
By Clifton, J. R.; Bentz, D. P.; Kaetzel, L. J.; February 1997, 43 p.
A Computerized Integrated Knowledge Based System (CIKS) is a computerized intelligent system of integrated knowledge base systems providing the knowledge for solving problems of a range of complexities. Along with these knowledge bases, a comprehensive CIKS will include ways to obtain knowledge from distributed knowledge sources using Remote Database Access (RDA) and Agent technologies.

 Human Cognition and Social Agent Technology  
By Kerstin Dautenhahn, 1999, 430 pp
This book presents state-of-the-art ideas, concepts, architectures and innovative implementations in an interdisciplinary field which links issues of human cognition with social agent technology. It is written for readers who are curious about what human (social) cognition is, and whether and how advanced software programs or robots can become social agents. Topics addressed in 16 peer-reviewed chapters by researchers at the forefront of agent research include: Narrative intelligence and implementations of story-telling systems, socially situated avatars and 'conscious' software agents, cognitive architectures for socially intelligent agents, agents with emotions, design issues for interactive systems, artificial life agents, contributions to agent design from artistic practice, and a Cognitive Technology view on living with socially intelligent agents. The book addresses both software and robotic agents.

 Mobility: Processes, Computers, and Agents  
by Dejan S. Milojicic, Frederick Douglis, Richard G. Wheeler, 1998, pp. 896
This book brings together in one single resource the leading edge of research and practice in three areas of mobility: process migration, mobile computing, and mobile agents

 Building Neural Networks  
By David M. Skapura, 1996, 304 pp.
Organized by application areas, rather than by specific network architectures or learning algorithms, Building Neural Networks shows why certain networks are more suitable than others for solving specific kinds of problems. Skapura also reviews principles of neural information processing and furnishes an operations summary of the most popular neural-network processing models.,,0201539217,00%2ben-USS_01DBC.html

 Knowledge Representation: Logical, Philosophical, and Computational Foundations,  
John F. Sowa,8/16/1999, 594 pp.
Knowledge representation developed as a branch of artificial intelligence, the science of designing computer systems to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence. But today, advanced systems everywhere are performing tasks that used to require human intelligence: information retrieval, stock-market trading, resource allocation, circuit design, virtual reality, speech recognition, and machine translation. As a result, the AI design techniques have converged with techniques from other fields, especially database and object-oriented systems. This book is a general textbook of knowledge-base analysis and design, intended for anyone whose job is to analyze knowledge about the real world and map it to a computable form.

 Agent Sourcebook  
By Alper Caglayan and Colin G. Harrison, 06/1997, 349 pp.
A practical guide to introducing agent technology into your business applications.
Caglayan and Harrison explain the underlying technology, including knowledge representation, inferencing, and learning, and describe how agents can be used to improve efficiency while dramatically cutting the cost of doing work.

 Communicating and Mobile Systems: The Pi Calculus  
By Robin Milner, 1999, 160 pp
Robin Milner was one of the founding members and the first director of the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science. He now works in Cambridge where he holds a Research Professorship in the Computer Laboratory.
