Personal agents will become ubiquitous.
Unprotected resources will become overwhelmed.
The Net will shift by necessity to a pay-as-you-go system.
Agents will use e-cash as a bargaining chip and as a
metric for performance.
Agent frameworks become the new medium in which agents
live, reproduce, and thrive.
Costs become the energy (Lyapunov) function that damps
unstable oscillations and rewards successful efficient
Agent frameworks become prevalent as they charge for
their resources; distributed computing becomes a reality.
Agents are produced using genetic and neural learning
algorithms akin to artificial life using the costs
as the feedback metric.
Agent Frameworks = The New Medium
