The Network IS the Virus presented at SummerCon 2001

by Patrick Bagwell, Paul Cunningham,

Summary : The Programmer Agents at Comet Way will present the latest
developments in the field of Agent Programming. Agent Programming is
a means of problem solving whereby many small software entities work
in concert to generate some useful result. Further, Agent Programming
lends itself to studies in mutation and software migration, both of
which are subjects of ongoing research at Comet Way, where Programmer
Agents explore connec-tions between technology and biology. Agent
Programming is less than procedural: the goal is a software
collective which can find its own path to a solution without explicit
help from the Programmer Agent.
