Intelligent Agent


An intelligent agent is software that, once programmed, runs independent of the user, fulfilling its function without need of further direction. Intelligent agents are, to varying degrees, artificial intelligence. They make decisions based upon their environments, and in the case of more complex intelligence agents, learn based upon experience, altering behavior accordingly.
