Extending the BDI architecture with commitments
Abstract. In this paper, we describe a novel agent architecture for normative multiagent systems which is based on multi-context systems. It models the three modalities of Rao and Georgeff's BDI agents as individual contexts and adds a fourth one for commitments. This new component is connected to all other mental attitudes via two sets of bridge rules, injecting formulae into it and modifying the BDI components after reasoning about commitments. As with other normative approaches the need for methods to deal with consistency is a key concern. We suggest three forms of dealing with the truth maintenance problem, all of which profit from the use of multi-context systems. Keywords. BDI agents, normative multi-agent systems, logics for agents
