Agents Meta Guide


In the context of artificial intelligence, an agent is a software program or system that is designed to perform tasks or actions on behalf of a user or another system. Agents are often designed to be autonomous and able to operate independently, although they may also be able to communicate with other agents or systems to exchange information or collaborate on tasks.

Agents may be used in a variety of different contexts, including to perform tasks such as data collection, data processing, and decision-making. They may be used to automate tasks that would otherwise be time-consuming or difficult for humans to perform, or to perform tasks that require a high level of accuracy or reliability.

A multi-agent system is a system that is composed of multiple interacting agents. In a multi-agent system, the agents are designed to work together to achieve a common goal or to perform a specific task. They may communicate with each other and exchange information to coordinate their actions and make decisions.


  • Agent architecture, a blueprint for software agents and control systems
  • Agent-based model, a computational model for simulating the actions and interactions of individuals
  • Intelligent agent, an autonomous, goal-directed entity which observes and acts upon an environment
  • Software agent, a piece of software that acts for a user or other program
