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)

Many people have experienced computers not doing what they were expected to do or, perhaps more often, met with computers that deliver faulty results. Frequently, if not always, such behavior is blamed the lack of a complete requirements specification. In this assertion, it is tacitly understood that if a specification is correct and comprehensive enough(More)

In this paper I discuss the most common approaches to the supply chain problem. I argue that they rest on static ideas while thc supply chain network is better viewed as an ongoing activity for which the suggested methods are inappropriate. Hence, none of the popular methods has a suitable model of the problem. Instead I suggest intinitc gamcs as a(More)
