System measures bioterrror threat

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have created a system that can coordinate, through software agents, an evacuation of people in an area of an escalating bioterrorism crisis. The prototype, called the Interoperability of Multi-agent Systems to Support an Escalating Noncombatant Evacuation Operation, or Tie-3, can dynamically evaluate a situation, form an evacuation plan, monitor activity and reformulate escape plans as necessary.
