Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the development of a multi agent system working on the Semantic Web environment by using a new framework called SEAGENT. SEAGENT is a new agent development framework and platform, which includes built-in features for semantic web based multi agent system development. These features provide semantic supports such as a new specific content language for transferring semantic knowledge, specifically designed agent's internal architecture to handle semantic knowledge, a new directory facilitator architecture based on semantic service matching engine and ontology management service to provide ontology translations within the platform's ontologies. The implemented case study shows the effectiveness of these features in terms of semantically enriched multi agent system development.
