The ubiquitous network environment exist everywhere in the society and various information systems build on such networked environment are expected to support everyday life and social activities of people, and to create new life styles and advanced information society. It becomes an important problem to develop intelligent systems, which can cooperate with various people as the human-friendly, easy-to-use, intelligent partners, in order to support various creative activities of people in an active and autonomic way. To realize such an intelligent system, we propose a concept called Cyberware as an infrastructure of Cybersociety that provides people a new information environment in which people and various systems can work together cooperatively. We aim at studying advanced information technologies to realize a new infrastructure of cybersociety based on cooperation and coordination of both people and intelligent systems over the networked environment. The cyberware consists of three kinds of intelligent functional components, i.e., Socialware, Perceptualware and Networkware. The socialware supports activities of society members, i.e., people and intelligent systems, using various knowledge of cybersociety, the perceptualware supports flexible interactions between people and cybersociety, and the networkware supports socialware and perceptualware by preparing easy-to-use functions and services provided by networked environment. In our research, we adopt the agent-based computing technology as one of essential technologies to realize advanced communication and cooperative activities of both people and intelligent systems in the cybersociety.
