In this paper, we present Gulliver's Genie, an archetypical ubiquitous computing application. Gulliver's Genie embraces three central constructs; those of agency, mobility and adaptivity. The architecture adopts a Multi-Agent Systems metaphor whereby agents manage and maintain a context within which mobile users exist and, based upon this context, seeks to adapt and personalize content based upon perceived individual user needs. Agents are mobile and may migrate to or from environmental artifacts reflecting their computational constraints.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2004 Elsevier Ltd.||Keywords:||Intelligent agents;Pervasive computing;Context-awareness;BDI agents;Mobile augmented reality||DOI:||10.1016/j.cag.2004.06.007||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
