A Comparative Study of Programming Agents in POSH and GOAL

Rien Korstanje, Cyril Brom, Jakub Gemrot, Koen V. Hindriks
2016 Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence  
A Comparative Study of Programming Agents in POSH and GOAL.  ...  The main focus of the study is on the usability of both languages and the differences between novice and more advanced programmers that use either language.  ...  The study did not involve an experimental design with programmers as subjects nor a comparison with other languages. Agent programming languages have been empirically compared in only a few studies.  ...

Agent-Based Software Testing: A Definition and Systematic Mapping Study [article]

Pavithra Perumal Kumaresen, Mirgita Frasheri, Eduard Enoiu
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Our results suggest that there is an interest in ABST after 1999 that resulted in the development of solutions using reactive, BDI, deliberative and cooperate agent architectures for software testing.  ...  In order to provide a comprehensive overview of this research area, which we define as agent-based software testing (ABST), a systematic mapping study has been conducted.  ...  On the other hand, 32% of the studies did not use any empirical research methods.  ...

Time in Language, Situation Models, and Mental Simulations

Rolf A. Zwaan
2008 Language Learning  
The article concludes with some speculative thoughts on how simulation theories might accomplish this intellectual feat.  ...  A final problem with regard to equating language comprehension with action observation is that sentences are often mute on the manner in which an action is performed.  ...  One might speculate that this motor program would be followed with the auditory simulation of a starting car.  ...
