AgentSpeak(L): BDI Agents Speak Out in a Logical Computable Language

  title={AgentSpeak(L): BDI Agents Speak Out in a Logical Computable Language},
  author={Anand S. Rao},
Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) agents have been investigated by many researchers from both a theoretical specification perspectiveand a practical design perspective. However, there still remains a large gap between theory and practice. The main reason for this has been the complexity of theorem-proving or modelchecking in these expressive specification logics. Hence, the implemented BDI systems have tended to use the three major attitudes as data structures, rather than as modal operators. In… CONTINUE READING
