This paper presents a new framework for autonomous agents that is based on the concept of anticipatory systems. It is a hybrid approach that synthesizes low-level reactive behavior and high-level symbolic reasoning. According to this framework, an agent, i.e. an anticipatory agent, consists of three main entities: a reactive system, a world model, and a(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to the problem of designing autonomous agents that is based on the idea of anticipatory systems. An anticipatory system has a model of itself and of the relevant part of its environment and will use this model to predict the future. The predictions are then utilised to determine the agent's behaviour, i.e. it lets future(More)
During the last ten years or so, much effort has been spent on developing software architecture by analogy with hardware architecture from where the idea seems to originate. Much of the work has been devoted to specifying standard program units, called components, and their connections. The architecture is then the specific organization of these components(More)
