Adaptive Agent Oriented Software Architecture (AAOSA) is a new approach to software design based on an agent-oriented architecture. In this approach, agents are considered adaptively communicating modules divided into a “white box” module, which is responsible for communications and learning and a “black box” which, is responsible for the independent specialized processes. An AAOSA parser can parse context sensitive languages. The use of this methodology in designing user interfaces helps overcome many human-machine interface problems by limiting the domain of language processing to the functional domain of the application.
