Some of these are ubiquitous, for example, privacy and security. Others give rise to integration and interoperability issues. The agent paradigm, though offering potential in fixed networked scenarios, has not been seriously considered as a mechanism for incorporating mobile clients, primarily to their computational intractability on mobile devices. However, recent developments in agent and mobile computing technologies – both from a hardware and software perspective, have rendered the mobile phone a viable platform for agents. One implication of this is that agents now offer a viable platform for service delivery to mobile users. This chapter reflects on some of the pertinent issues necessary for this, including Agent Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE). The discussion is illuminated with a systematic description of EasyLife – a framework that harnesses the agent paradigm to construct and deliver services to mobile users.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg||Keywords:||Ambient intelligence; Mobile computing; Agent-oriented information systems; Location-aware computing||Subject LCSH:||Ambient intelligence
