Tractable Reasoning about Agent Programming in Dynamic Preference Logic

Marlo Souza, Alvaro Moreira, Renata Vieira
2018 2018 7th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS)  
In this work, we use of Dynamic Preference Logic to provide a semantic foundation to BDI agent programming languages and investigate tractable expressive fragments of this logic to reason about agent programs  ...  With that, we aim to provide a way of implementing semantically grounded agent programming languages with tractable reasoning cycles.  ...  Recently, it has been proposed that Dynamic Preference Logic (DPL) can be used to reason about BDI Agent Programming with declarative mental attitudes [2] , providing a. a computable two-way translation  ...

LAIMA: A Multi-agent Platform Using Ordered Choice Logic Programming [chapter]

Marina De Vos, Tom Crick, Julian Padget, Martin Brain, Owen Cliffe, Jonathan Needham
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Agents are represented as Ordered Choice Logic Programs (OCLP) for modelling their knowledge and reasoning capacities, with communication between the agents regulated by uni-directional channels transporting  ...  In this paper we present a deductive reasoning multi-agent platform using an extension of answer set programming (ASP).  ...  To model a single agent's reasoning, we use Ordered Choice Logic Programs [3] , an extension of answer set programming that provides for explicit representation of preferences between rules and dynamic  ...

For Better or for Worse: Dynamic Logics of Preference [chapter]

Johan van Benthem
2009 Preference Change  
In the last few years, preference logic and in particular, the dynamic logic of preference change, has suddenly become a live topic in my Amsterdam and Stanford environments.  ...  There is no pretense at complete coverage of preference logic (for that, see Hanson 2001) or even of preference change (Hanson 1995).  ...  Acknowledgment I wish to thank Fenrong Liu and Jonathan Zvesper for their useful comments.  ...

Decisions, Actions, and Games: A Logical Perspective [chapter]

Johan van Benthem
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
scenarios of practical reasoning about agents involve a number of notions at the same time: Example One single decision.  ...  A concrete setting for this entanglement are games -and this paper is a survey of their interfaces with logic, both static and dynamic.  ...  The reason for its correctness is easy to see. ■ Note that {i}φ talks about intermediate nodes, not just the end nodes of a game.  ...

Modal Logics of Negotiation and Preference [chapter]

Ulle Endriss, Eric Pacuit
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The logic includes operators to speak about both preferences of individual agents and deals regarding the reallocation of certain resources.  ...  We develop a dynamic modal logic that can be used to model scenarios where agents negotiate over the allocation of a finite number of indivisible resources.  ...  More specifically, we are developing a logic in the style of propositional dynamic logic (PDL) that allows us to speak both about the preferences of individual agents and the aggregated preferences of  ...
