Abstract
We will develop a prototype software tool known as CAPRA (a CAncer Patient data Retrieval Agent).will act as an intelligent agent that can assist oncological researchers and diagnosticians in accesand manipulating information from PDQ and CANCERLIT databases and other information sources availablthrough the National information infrastructure. The CAPRA architecture will model the search and tstrategies of human information gathering specialists so as to support anticipatory prediction of usneeds. This model will be captured and implemented using our innovative COGNET analysis methodologyintelligent agent software construction tool. These technologies have previously been used to repreconstruct intelligent agents in a variety of complex domains. Tasks to be performed during Phase Iarchitecture and functionality of the intelligent agent, applying cognitive engineering techniques tof the behaviors' and strategies of human searchers, implementing that model using BATON software, tdemonstrating the performance of the prototype agent, and incorporating the results of previous taskassessment report and a plan to provide a more detailed demonstration of CAPRA's capabilities during
