Technische Universität Berlin, Germany

The DAI-Labor together with the chair for agent technologies in business applications and telecommunication (AOT) of the Technische Universität Berlin researches and develops technologies for the realization of intelligent mobility management, agent based serviceware frameworks, service engineering, and serviceware infrastructures. The DAI-Labor is mainly financed through research projects based on third-party funds, and currently employs about 30 researchers and 40 students, of a total of 2700 researchers employed by TU Berlin.


In close co-operation with the Deutsche Telekom AG, the DAI-Labor has developed the JIAC framework for the efficient realization and deployment of intelligent, secure, and manageable agent-based services and applications. The framework includes extensive security mechanisms for secure service provisioning, such as smart card support, service authorization, and security of mobile agents. It is currently extended to support the creation of personalized, device- and location-independent services with a special focus on privacy aspects. In the context of mobile identity management, several projects including agent-based identity management, i.e. software agents representing users and user identities, have been carried out. The DAI-Labor co-operates closely with Sun Microsystems, especially in the area of identity management. Further projects include a beyond-3G testbed integrating heterogeneous technologies for mobile and wireless communication, which has been set up in coordination with several industry partners.
