The concept of an agent has become important in both Artificial Intelligence (AI) and mainstream computer science. In this article, we present a survey of what we perceive to be the most important theoretical and practical issues associated with the design and construction of intelligent agents. The article also includes a short review of current and potential applications of agent technology, and closes with a glossary of key terms, an annotated list of systems, and a detailed bibliography. Pointers to further reading are provided throughout.
