Knowledge-Based Electronic Markets
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Tim Finin and Benjamin Grosof, Cochairs
This workshop addressed the challenges, opportunities, and practical applications of knowledge-based electronic markets (e-markets). By e-markets, we mean markets on the web (or large inter-enterprise private networks) where buyers interact and transact with sellers. e-markets also include infrastructure support and mediation services and players, such as for yellow pages, catalogs, shopping search, advertising, sales assistants, brokering, aggregation, infomediaries, reputation and trust management, authentication, and payments. By knowledge-based, we mean using automated techniques for knowledge representation and reasoning, learning, and communication, for example, in intelligent agents.
