Abstract:  Personal agents and APIs can enable personalized applications that facilitate the daily processes that a person uses to gather, classify, persist and retrieve information in daily activities. Part of the functionality will be covered by general purpose APIs, but others will need higher degrees of customization. This thesis focus on systems where to count with common models is difficult, and investigate a bottom up approach where personal agents copy, transform and combine API features from others, as a mechanism to improve their own means of interaction.
