A Study on Decision Support Systems and Autonomous Agents |
Software agents have been heralded as the mostimportant emerging technology of the decade. As software development firmseagerly attempt to integrate these autonomous programs into their products,researchers attempt to define the concept of agency and to developarchitectures that will improve agent capabilities. Decision Support System(DSS) researchers have been eager to integrate agents into their applicationsand exploratory works in which agents have been used within a DSS have beendocumented. Decision Support System (DSS) researchers have been quick to experimentwith software agents.
