In recent years, more and more researchers have been involved in research on both agent technology and distributed data mining. A clear disciplinary effort has been activated toward removing the boundary between them that is the interaction and integration between agent technology and distributed data mining. The authors refer this to agent mining as a new area. The marriage of agents and distributed data mining is driven by challenges faced by both communities, and the need of developing more advanced intelligence, information processing and systems. In this paper presents an overall picture of agent mining from the perspective of positioning it as an emerging area.
