System and method for distributed scheduling
WO 2001037541 A3
Abstract
A system and method for distributed scheduling using an adaptive personal assistant system (100) are disclosed. The adaptive personal assistant system (100) generally comprises a communications interface (102), a personal information manager (104), a meeting scheduler (106), a preferences manager (108), and a natural language e-mail processor (110). The adaptive personal assistant system (100) provides a distributed multi-platform network-based solution for personal task and appointment scheduling. By using distributed agent functionality, the adaptive personal assistant system (100) allows users on the network, such as a corporate network or the Internet, who may be using different appointment calendar software and divergent e-mail applications, to converge on mutually acceptable appointment times.
