Addressing the needs of the mobile computing community in all its guises is one of the critical challenges facing the research community in the coming decade. Given the constraints under which mobile computers must operate, significant effort must be expended to ensure that the end user’s experience is satisfactory. In this paper, the selective use of intelligent agents as a means of augmenting the user experience through interfacing with the physical environment and anticipating user requirements is proposed.
