The body of available information is rapidly increasing every day. It is becoming impossible for humans to peruse all the available information and extract the data related to a specific topic. A great deal of important information is being neglected primarily for two major reasons. Firstly, highly relevant information is losing its true meaning within a pool of insignificant and unauthorized information. A lot of available information is published which is of no significance and sometimes may even be destructive and corruptive in nature. Secondly, new knowledge and discoveries are emerging quickly as we continue to progress and new technologies emerge. It is becoming more and more difficult each day to find specific information even within a body of authorized information.
As a solution to this problem, humans are designing software agents that will do the search for them. In this chapter, we will discuss agent features such as environment, internal structure, mobility, communication, and cooperative work with other agents.
