An intelligent agent is a computer software system that’s capable of acting independently to achieve certain goals and responding to people or events that are happening around it. It is programmed using the field of Artificial Intelligence called machine learning and equipped with sensors that allow it to observe and adapt to situations. 

IAs are utilized in areas that require interacting with people because they are capable of demonstrating basic social skills. Today’s examples of intelligent agents include Siri and Alexa. These can understand a request and act on their own to look for the information that’s being asked.
