Research is the core task of STI Innsbruck. Our motto is "Enabling Semantics". Find out more about our current research directions!
The primary objective is to analyze the agent platform "Fred" and to position it within the existing State of the Art. All with respect to the potential within the area of semantic web and semantic web services. Freds are agents that complete their tasks by communicating and interacting with each other within a central Fred Location. A single Fred Location may host several million Freds performing a variety of different tasks, interacting with each other. A common language ensures that Freds understand each other perfectly and can exchange information based on ontologies. Agent Technologies and especially the Fred platform seems to have the potential to bring semantic web technologies to its full potential. Within this project we will identify further steps realizing this goal.
