   Project Description

The TRAC project developed mixed-initiative technology that enables flexible tasking and direction of agents by a user. Within TRAC, a user assigns tasks to agents along with guidance that imposes boundaries on agent behavior. During execution, the user manages agent activities in accord with a level of involvement that suits his individual needs. In essence, our work can be viewed as providing a form of process management technology that enables ready human control of agent communities.
