Agents

The term agent has been used to mean many different things, ranging from spell checkers that work as you type to artificial intelligence programs that find the information you need before you ask for it. To be practical today, agents are typically more limited in capability, although many research projects are exploring what agents might be able to do.

In the realm of Internet commerce, the most common conception of an agent is something like a personal shopper, which finds various items you might be looking for and presents them with comparison information. Taken a step further, such an agent may even be authorized to make purchases under certain conditions.
