The bot 'runs on multiple computers in a network and depending on circumstances the separate copies of the agent can act alone or together as a single, distributed program. The [bots] across the network constantly compare notes to determine if any unusual requests or commands have been received from external or internal sources.'" A cool-sounding project, to be sure -- but how much control is too much to cede to the intelligent agents?
