Abstract

This paper presents a framework that can be used for improving working conditions. We have extended intelligent agents technology for the Internet with cell phone technology. This extension allows the mobile worker to have access to the full power of server based computation using cheaper, smaller, mobile devices. The most demanding part of the computation is performed by agents running on Internet servers while cell phone computations are concerned only with the interface between end-users and server-based agents. Although we have focused only on Cell Phones, the same technology can be used with, Smart Phones and other mobile devices.
