   Abstract

JANUS knows where I am. It knows my address book, calendar, and to-do list. Through the Web, it can access maps, traffic reports, and public schedules of events. It can check GPS units, web cams, and other sensors. It can produce and understand spoken language. It can perform inferences to answer questions, solve problems, and warn of potential conflicts. Can your Palm Pilot do that? A preliminary demo will be given.
