Media Agent

  As learning events are entered into the service database, they are tagged for their topics. These are automatically compared against the learning profiles of customers who have activated the Media Agent watcher. These customers are notified of the event. Using the device interface, they can indicate if they would like to attend. If so, the system can compare the event topic against the learner's other topic interests and check to see if there is any link in the database between them. If there is, the system can send the message to the learner around the time they are attending, helping to connect their current interests and encourage lateral thinking. If such a link does not exist in the database, the system can automatically submit it as a question to experts in the Cavalry pool.
