An autonomous software agent is a stand-alone computer program that performs tasks on behalf of a controlling entity, but without direct, continuous supervision. The autonomous agent may utilize network resources and services, but works relatively independently of other software agents, unlike a software agent that is part of a multi-agent system (MAS).
Variant of autonomous agent.
Singular of autonomous software agents.
