An Architecture for Supporting Quasi-Agent Entities in the WWW

Charles Brooks, W. Scott Meeks, Murray Mazer, OSF Research Institute

One-line summary: Circumvent Web usage limitations by providing HTTP stream transducers for annotation, semi-autonomous WWW-based (really HTTP-based) "browsing associates", and front-ends for encapsulating non-HTTP content (mail, news, Zephyr-grams, etc).

Overview/Main Points


Stateful proxy-like entities that help you out during Web browsing. It's Web-centric in terms of implementation but the architecture seems more general, even though authors don't directly make that claim.
