Belief operations for motivated BDI agents
The beliefs of an agent reflecting her subjective view of the world constitute one of the main components of a BDI agent. In order to incorporate new information coming from other agents, or to adjust to changes in the environment, the agent has to carry out belief change operations while taking metalogical information on time and reliabilities into account. In this paper, we describe a framework for belief operations within a BDI agent, sketching the interactions of beliefs with desires and intentions, respectively. Furthermore, we illustrate how motivations and know-how come into play in our agent model of this framework. We focus on the presentation of a complex setting for belief change that makes use of techniques both from merging and update, and provides a BDI agent with advanced reasoning capabilities. Extended logic programs under the answer set semantics will serve as the basic knowledge representation formalism. Categories and Subject Descriptors I.2.11 [Distributed Artific...
