Abstract

We propose a taxonomy of Web agents, which encompasses agents that provide a text-based interface to, for example, information retrieval services as well as avatar-embodied guides that help visitors to navigate in virtual environments. Our taxonomy must be regarded as an instrument to delineate targets for research and the realization of prototype applications that demonstrate the usefulness of agent-based intelligence on the Web. In addition, we deploy our agent-taxonomy to establish the implications particular target applications have with respect to software architecture and computational resources.
