what kind of specification enablement [if any] was provided for the key "automated agent" feature here? That question may have more indirect influence on these Alice 101 case decisions than is generally admitted?

The agent is software and described functionally in the specification. The description is not as detailed as I like to see, but I don't think would raise an enablement issue.


I don't see any particularly special in the specification with respect to the specification enablement of the "automated agent" feature.

The patent is only 7 pages long and includes two drawings that include 1 flowchart and 1 diagram showing how the invention works.
