Nausica? and the sirens, mythological characters from Homer's Odyssey, have totally different characters. Nausica?, an intelligent and modest princess, helps Odysseus on his journey to Alcino?s's city. The Sirens, however, are sea creatures who use their beautiful voices to lure mariners onto the rocks surrounding their island. These characters gave me inspiration on how to design and deploy agents for real-world tasks.
