Developing intelligent agent systems - a practical guide
Build your own intelligent agent system. Intelligent agent technology is a tool of modern computer science that can be used to engineer complex computer programmes that behave rationally in dynamicExpand
Prometheus: a methodology for developing intelligent agents
TLDR
The Prometheus methodology is presented, which has been developed over several years in collaboration with Agent Oriented Software, and is a detailed and complete methodology for developing intelligent agents which has evolved out of industrial and pedagogical experience. Expand
JACKTM Intelligent Agents: An Industrial Strength Platform
  • M. Winikoff
  • Engineering, Computer Science
  • Multi-Agent Programming
  • 2005
TLDR
This paper argues that JACK meets requirements such as familiarity, scalability and integratibility which make it suitable for adoption by industry, and describes interesting features of JACK such as the use of capabilities for structuring agents, and the approach to teamwork which allows hierarchical team structures.

Declarative and procedural goals in intelligent agent systems
TLDR
This paper presents a high-level plan notation with goals and gives its formal semantics, and shows how the use of declarative information permits reasoning to be performed on goals. Expand
Comparing Agent-Oriented Methodologies
TLDR
A comparison of three prominent agent- oriented methodologies: MaSE, Prometheus and Tropos is presented based upon an attribute-based framework which addresses four major areas: concepts, modelling language, process and pragmatics. Expand
Declarative & Procedural Goals in Intelligent Agent Systems
TLDR
This paper presents a high-level plan notation with goals and gives its formal semantics, and shows how the use of declarative information permits reasoning to be performed on goals. Expand
Goals in agent systems: a unifying framework
TLDR
A formal and generic operationalization of goals is given by defining an abstract goal architecture, which describes the adoption, pursuit, and dropping of goals in a generic way. Expand
Debugging multi-agent systems using design artifacts: the case of interaction protocols
TLDR
This work proposes that the debugging process can be improved by following an agent-oriented design methodology, and then using the design artifacts in the debugging phase, and presents an example of this scheme which uses interaction protocols to debug agent interaction. Expand
Prometheus: A Pragmatic Methodology for Engineering Intelligent Agents
Agents are a powerful technology with many significant applications. A key issue in getting the technology into mainstream software development is the development of appropriate methodologies forExpand
Prometheus design tool
TLDR
The Prometheus Design Tool is a graphical editor which supports the design tasks specified within the Prometheus methodology for designing agent systems and ensures consistency between various parts of the design. Expand
