An Agent-Based Approach to Ubiquitous Information Access

Ubiquitous information access from different mobile devices is a challenge to computer science researchers. Research in this areas has focused on eliminating different wireless link related problems like bandwidth, disconnection existing in providing information to the mobile systems. This information is also assumed to be available through some services existing in the high bandwidth fixed network infrastructure. We investigate the situations where the information required is not readily available on the network and it needs to be obtained by dynamically locating the required data and then possibly initiating a series of computations to obtain the informaiton. This paper presents a layered architecture for addressing this problem generally and also our initial implementation of this architecture.
