The Virtual Secretary (ViSe) is a kind of intelligent agent that could assist its user in major secretarial work. Users give the orders of what to do, while agents figure out how to do and carry out the tasks. This paper presents the ViSe agents in two aspects: (1) construct individual agent on three intelligence levels: knowledge-base level, learning level and cooperation level; and (2) to model other agents’ activities by cooperator-base ~J task-base for the purpose of efficient cooperation. We argue that this agent modeling could achieve intelligent cooperation, high performance and easy maintenance in multi-agent systems.
