We introduce a simple agent construct associated to a named local database and a "Twitter-style" weak inheritance mechanism between local agents. On top of a remote predicate call layer, connecting distributed agent spaces, we build a replication mechanism allowing agents "visiting" remote spaces to expose their computational capabilities to non-local followers. The resulting protocol has the remarkable property that only updates to the state of the agents are sent over the network through… CONTINUE READING
