The Microsoft contact for agent technology I have is Eric Horvitz,
a senior researcher there. ( )

Microsoft agent projects:

1. MSR SiteSensor - collaborative filtering agents as Web companions

2. Merchant Server - agents suggest things you might want to buy

3. Lumiere - "office assistant" agents that adapt themselves to
a person's usage characteristics

4. Microsoft Belief Network - 30 Bayesian troubleshooters that
can be incorporated into agents in Microsoft projects

That's all the agent efforts I know of, at Microsoft.
