- We must represent facts ...
- ... and reasoning about them
- On the web, knowledge is represented in a machine
readable form ...
- ... and software agents can make use of it
A software agent could understand a fact about a concrete fact,
the patient X, who suffers of the desease Y, is treated by
the medicine Z
A software agent could use this information to
take actions (e.g. contact other software agents and
arrange a visit with doctor D).
