Consumer-Centric Knowledge Web - A Vision of Consumer Applications of Software Agent Technology - Enabling Consumer-Centric Knowledge-Based Computing
As part of my effort to contemplate the applications of software agent technology for consumers, I've recently started to focus on something I call the Consumer-Centric Knowledge Web, which is the design and implementation of knowledge-based applications that keep the consumer at the center using software agent technology. This is more than simply consumer-oriented, which means that vendors at least pay lip service to consumers, but consumer-centric means that the consumer is placed at the center and in full control, where vendors are not in a position to dictate *any* terms.
I've re-titled my big white paper to reflect this refined focus: "The Consumer-Centric Knowledge Web - A Vision of Consumer Applications of Software Agent Technology - Enabling Consumer-Centric Knowledge-Based Computing." It's still an early work in progress (my "to do" list at the end has over 300 items on it).
You can also find it by doing a Google on "consumer agent vision" (without the quotes). It was result #1 when I just tried it. Click here.
