Context-Broker Service Architecture for AmI Systems Through Mobile-Agents and Ontologies as Middleware
Semantic web is mainly addressed to distributed web systems development. The semantic web organizes the information in a way that it is possible to find it even the amount of data is enormous. The semantic web provides a way to transform the information into knowledge by storing the data in concepts related by their meaning. This work-in-progress paper is going to show that this technology eases the construction of autonomous systems through agents. Particularly, we have developed an agent-oriented context-broker architecture that implements a smart conference room. The main contribution of the paper is the emulation of an ambient intelligent system, where mobile agents are working with well-defined ontology knowledge. Ontologies represent the main layer in the semantic web architecture. Thus, we use the ontology engineering features to represent a middleware infrastructure.
