An Infrastructure for a Mobile-Agent System that Provides Personalized Services to Mobile Devices
Debbie O. Chyi
Dartmouth TR2000-370


In this paper, we present the design of a mobile-agent system that provides a mobile user with a personalized information retrieval service and we describe the implementation of the infrastructure for such a system. This "Personal Agent System" gathers information from the Internet and uses context-aware mechanisms to manage the information according to a mobile user's needs and preferences. The user's schedule and location are the context indicators in this system. These indicators are critical in ensuring that users obtain only the information they want, receive information in a form that is most useful for viewing on their mobile device, and is notified of new information in a minimally intrusive manner. The system incorporates a rule-based learning system to enhance the personalization achieved by the system.
