Brief description Despite the hype surrounding electronic business-to-business commerce, little business is conducted completely automatically as yet due to the complexity of the issues being negotiated and by the high value of the deals involved. Sophisticated and reliable negotiation technology is required to address this shortcoming. This project looks beyond electronic business to informed negotiation in a broad sense. It will create reliable automatic negotiators for which information is a strategic weapon. It will build systems to extract reliable market information. The whole project is embedded in electronic institutions that foreshadow the electronic markets of tomorrow.
