The research in intelligent agents have progressed over more than a decade emerging from research in distributed artificial intelligence and distributed computing. The prime motivation for developing intelligent agent technology stems from the demand for systems that can interoperate by exchanging information and services with other programs, thereby solving problems that cannot be solved in isolation. The Centre for Agent Technology (CAT) is established to become the leader in the development of agent technology based on intelligent software agent paradigm.

The objectives of CAT are:

  1. To investigate the architectures of existing agent-based systems, including standards for agent development and communication
  2. To formalise an agent development framework
  3. To propose agent-based software systems which meet the needs of TNB.


Research Areas

Through established collaborators such as Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), the centre is committed to deliver quality research and consultancy activities related to Agent Technology. Some of the potential research and consultancy areas are:

Multi-agent Systems Architecture, Social and Normative Agent, Emotion endowed Agent, Agent Negotiation, Interface Agent, Decision Support Agent, Agent Mining, Agent Delegation, Coordination and Monitoring, Agent Trust and Networking, Agent Communication Language, Agent Development Platform, Semantic Agent, Ontologies and Information Agents
