Agents for Distributed Multimedia Information Management

DeRoure, David C., Hall, Wendy, Davis, Hugh C. and Dale, Jonathan (1996) Agents for Distributed Multimedia Information Management. First International Conference on the Practical Application of Intellgient Agents and Multi-Agent Technology, (London, UK). , 91--102.


This paper discusses the role of agents in a distributed multimedia information system (DMIS) engineered according to the principles of open hypermedia. It is based on the new generation of Microcosm, an open hypermedia system developed by the Multimedia Research Group at the University of Southampton. Microcosm provides a framework for supporting the three major roles of agents within open information systems: resource discovery, information integrity and navigation assistance. We present Microcosm and its agents, and discuss our current research in applying agent technology in this framework.
