Intelligent information management in a distributed environment


The problem of intelligent information management in a distributed environment consisting of a collection of interacting problem solvers is discussed. Such environments require applications to be able to adapt to changing circumstances, interoperate to share knowledge and data and cooperate in joint problem-solving tasks. To support these requirements, artificial intelligence techniques have been applied to design an intelligent information manager that provides intelligent data distribution and manipulation based on information it maintains about the state of the network and other nodes, the quality and availability of data and the priorities of the data to be distributed.
