Abstract

Darpa Agent Markup Language (DAML) [7] is the newest effort for Semantic Web [5]. It can be used to create ontologies and markup information resource like web pages. The information resource can be read by human and understood by agent programs. We believed DAML could be used to markup agent communication content and promote knowledge sharing and exchanging between agents. This paper also suggested an alternative model to connect web and agent together. We defined the necessary ontologies for agent communication in DAML language and described the agent communication scenario occurred in the ITTalks Project.
