A BDI-based agent architecture for social competent agents

  title={A BDI-based agent architecture for social competent agents},
  author={Inon Zuckerman and Meirav Hadad},
  journal={Web Intell.},
In this work we suggest a Belief-Desires-Intentions mental model that provides agents with the social competence to capture and reason about their goals with respect to the goals of other agents/humans in the environment. The suggested architectural model would enable the implementation of generic social competent agents that would interact differently towards different groups. We explore the agent’s behavior on the social spectrum by computationally describing the maximum attainable benefit… Expand
Achieving multi-agent Coo2 using the BDI & SODA methodologies
The Agent Coordination and Cooperation Cognitive Model (ACM) is a new generation of agent-based models that will exploit an agent’s cognitive and mental architectures to strengthen Coo, by associating beliefs and orientation to coordination, as well as desire, intentions to cooperation will strengthen and improve situation awareness and decision-making, which is critical in dynamic environments.

Socially intelligent reasoning for autonomous agents
This work proposes a framework for making socially acceptable decisions, based on social welfare functions, that combines social and individual perspectives in a unified and flexible manner and demonstrates the possibility and efficacy of making the metalevel mechanism adaptive, so that experience of past encounters can be factored into the decision-making.

This work suggests a mental model that provides agents with similar social capabilities, and provides design principles that allow agents to reason and change their behavior according to their perception of the cooperative/competitive nature of the society. Expand
The adversarial activity model for bounded rational agents
The Adversarial Activity model is presented, a formal Beliefs-Desires-Intentions (BDI) based model for bounded rational agents operating in a zero-sum environment and behavioral axioms that are intended to serve as design principles for building such adversarial agents are presented. Expand
A logic-based model of intention formation and action for multi-agent subcontracting
This work uses a syntactic approach presenting a formal logical calculus that can be regarded as a meta-logic that describes the reasoning and activities of the agents and shows that under various initial conditions and known facts about agent beliefs and abilities, the meta-theory representation yields good results.

Intentions in Equilibrium
This paper presents a formal model of multi-agent systems in which belief-desire-intention agents choose their intentions taking into account the intentions of others, and formally defines and investigates notions ofMulti-agent intention equilibrium, which are related to equilibrium concepts in game theory.

Goal Representation for BDI Agent Systems
A generic representation of goal types, properties, and lifecycles is developed in consideration of existing goal-oriented requirements engineering and modelling techniques and is backed by experiences gained from developing a generic agent framework. Expand
A logic for strategic reasoning
CATL is an extension of Alternating-time Temporal Logic with a ternary counterfactual commitment operator of the form Ci(σ, φ), with the intended reading "if it were the case that agent i committed to strategy σ, then φ". Expand
Plans and resource‐bounded practical reasoning
A high‐level specification of the practical‐reasoning component of an architecture for a resource‐bounded rational agent, where a major role of the agent's plans is to constrain the amount of further practical reasoning she must perform. Expand
Supporting Collaborative Activity
The model suggests mental states for agents with different levels of cooperation and permits the formation of groups in which members increase individual benefits and defines key components of a collaborative activity and provides a platform for supporting such activity. Expand
Adapting to agents' personalities in negotiation
A model in which agents' helpfulness is characterized in terms of cooperation and reliability is described, which showed that agents using the model could identify and adapt to others' varying degree of helpfulness even while the other agents were constantly changing their strategy. Expand
