Intelligent application is characterized by its ability to make decision autonomously. Some examples are distributed agents that collaboratively complete a complex task, yet each one of them is able to work and reason independently given the dynamic situation where they are in. The underlying think tank is often a collection of core mechanisms that include environment sensing, data capturing, data mining, ETL, knowledge processing, and decision making etc. All these techniques when placed and function together as a whole intelligent system, they will have to fulfill stringent deadlines imposed by the requirements of a real-time system.
