Dey, Anind K., Abowd, Gregory D. and Wood, Andrew (1998): Cyberdesk: A Framework for Providing Self-Integrating Context-Aware Services. In: Marks, Joe (ed.) International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces 1998 January 6-9, 1998, San Francisco, California, USA. pp. 47-54.

Applications are often designed to take advantage of the potential for integration with each other via shared information. Current approaches for integration are limited, effecting both the programmer and end-user. In this paper, we present CyberDesk, a framework for self-integrating software in which integration is driven by user context. It relieves the burden on programmers by removing the necessity to predict how software should be integrated. It also relieves the burden from users by removing the need to understand how different software components work together.

Dey, Anind K., Abowd, Gregory D., Pinkerton, Mike and Wood, Andrew (1997): CyberDesk: A Framework for Providing Self-Integrating Ubiquitous Software Services. In: Robertson, George G. and Schmandt, Chris (eds.) Proceedings of the 10th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology October 14 - 17, 1997, Banff, Alberta, Canada. pp. 75-76.

Current software suites suffer from problems due to poor integration of their individual tools. They require the designer to think of all possible integrating behaviours and leave little flexibility to the user. CyberDesk is a component software framework that automatically integrates desktop and network services, reducing integrating decisions to be made by the tool designers and giving more control to the user. Simple extensions to CyberDesk have been made to obtain powerful integrating behaviours.

Proceedings of the Ninth Conference of the British Computer Society Human Computer Interaction Specialist Group - People and Computers IX August 23-26, 1994, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. pp. 239-245.

Agents are becoming widespread in a variety of computer systems and domains, but often appear to have little in common with each other. In this paper we look at different agent systems and identify what a generic agent should be composed of. We also identify the characteristics of a task that make it worthy of an agent-based approach. We then discuss the implications for the interaction of using agents, that is, the notion of a balanced interface, and briefly look at how an agent-based approach assists in two very different application domains.
