Mobile Smart Agents To Spend Your Money?


(via Textually) Holy Cow…A consortium of the world’s top consumer electronics firms, mobile networks and broadcasters are funding the development of cellphones that will spend money on your behalf. Prof. Nick Jennings and his team at the University of Southampton in the UK are developing programs known as software agents for the consortium.

The consortium, known as Mobile VCE, includes Nokia, Sony, Vodafone and the BBC.

The agents, which will run on the new generation of 3G phones, will watch how you use your mobile and learn to anticipate your next move: decide for themselves what they think you need, for example retrieving online information, making restaurant or hotel reservations or buying travel tickets for you.
