Return of the Intelligent Agents

from the them-again? dept

One of the technologies I’ve been interested in for years are intelligent agents. It seems that every few years they get a lot of press and agents are predicted to be in our future. Every time there are articles like the following, predicting a world of agents out there to do our bidding. In fact, I bet if I dug up articles from five or ten years ago they’d sound exactly the same. Of course, very little seems to have actually happened. Most agents, at this point, are limited to comparison shopping (and even the article points out that not many people find that useful right now). So, while I’d love to see real intelligent agents who could make my life easier, I’m not holding my breath just because yet another articles has come out about them.
