Reasoning about constitutive norms in BDI agents

N. Criado, E. Argente, P. Noriega, V. Botti
2013 Logic Journal of the IGPL  
Currently, the problem of how agents reason about constitutive norms has been tackled from a theoretical perspective only.  ...  Thus, there is a lack of more practical proposals that allow the development of software agents capable of reasoning about constitutive norms.  ...  the Reasoning about constitutive norms in BDI agents 87 FIG. 4.  ...

Extending Bdi Multiagent Systems With Agent Norms

Francisco José Plácido Da Cunha, Tassio Ferenzini Martins Sirqueira, Marx Leles Viana And Carlos José Pereira De Lucena
2018 Zenodo  
This paper considers the following types of norms: (i) obligation — agents must accomplish a specific outcome; (ii) permission — agents may act in a particular way, and (iii) prohibition — agents must  ...  This paper also introduces a framework for the development of MASs that provide support mechanisms to the agent's decision-making, using norm-based reasoning.  ...  Therefore, the agent is now able to reason about the norms addressed to it. Such process is important when we consider normative conflicts. C.  ...

A "Society of Mind" Cognitive Architecture Based on the Principles of Artificial Economics

Darryl N. Davis, Vijayakumar Maragal Venkatamuni
2010 International Journal of Artificial Life Research  
Metacognition is defined as thinking about thinking and can be viewed in two ways:  Monitoring a group of agents in an intelligent or cognitive or robotic architecture (i.e. self reflection)  Making  ...  The possibilities offered by computational techniques, and synthetic designs, are equally valid in defining what constitutes an artificial mind.  ...  The reasoning of decision variables for one agent (BDI-1) is shown in figure 5 .  ...

BDI reasoning with normative considerations

Felipe Meneguzzi, Odinaldo Rodrigues, Nir Oren, Wamberto W. Vasconcelos, Michael Luck
2015 Engineering applications of artificial intelligence  
In this paper we describe an extension of the Beliefs-Desires-Intentions (BDI) architecture that enables normative reasoning used to help agents choose and customise plans taking norms into account.  ...  However, recent efforts to provide norm-enabled agent architectures that guide plan choices suffer from interfering with an agent's reasoning process, and thus limit the agent's autonomy more than is required  ...  to enable BDI agents to explicitly reason about their compliance with regard to their plan execution.  ...

Marx L. Viana, Paulo Alencar, Everton T. Guimarães, Francisco J. P. Cunha, Donald Cowan, Carlos J. P. Lucena
2015 Proceedings of the 27th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering  
MASs can be defined as societies in which autonomous agents work to achieve both societal and individual goals.  ...  This paper introduces a framework for normative MASs simulation that provides mechanisms for understanding the impact of norms on an agent and the society to which an agent belongs.  ...  attitudes that deliberate human action [14] to reason about norms [7, 11] .  ...

Resolving Conflicts between Personal and Normative Goals in Normative Agent Systems

Azhana Ahmad, Moamin Ahmed, Mohd Zaliman Mohd Yusof, Mohd. Sharifuddin Ahmad, Aida Mustapha
2016 Journal of IT in Asia  
In this paper, we present a framework for resolving conflicts between personal and normative goals in normative agent systems.  ...  The Sacrifice function enables an agent to reason and discard any tasks that have lower priorities to make way for accomplishment of the normative goal.  ...  They propose deliberative normative agents that have explicit knowledge about the enacted norms in multi-agent environments and can decide whether to obey or violate the norms in specific situations.  ...

Probabilistic BDI in a Cognitive Robot Architecture

Darryl N Davis, Hossein Miri
2012 International Journal of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (IJCSAI)  
The Cerno research project extended the CAMAL (Computational Architectures for Motivation, Affect, and Learning) model, by incorporating probabilistic reasoning in its BDI model.  ...  The design and implementation of cognitive architectures is a useful tool for understanding cognition in a situated agent.  ...  Statements about the agent's environment at the deliberative level pertain to the possible beliefs the agent can hold. These constitute the beliefs used in the BDI model.  ...

ETHICA EX MACHINA. Exploring artificial moral agency or the possibility of computable ethics

Rodrigo Sanz
2020 Zeitschrift für Ethik und Moralphilosophie  
In this regard, I propose to expose, under a normative-cognitive perspective, the minimum criteria through which we could recognize an artificial entity as a genuine moral entity.  ...  Although my proposal should be considered from a reasonable level of abstraction, I will critically analyze and identify how an artificial agent could integrate those cognitive features.  ...  The reason why I find a concrete relevance in BDI architecture is that a desire leads to an intentional action in the search for a plan to accomplish an objective.  ...

In Search of Simple and Responsible Agents [chapter]

Henry Hexmoor, Gordon Beavers
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The agent internally reasons about its values and norms and that leads to its adoption of obligations. That type of consideration influences the agent's social relationships in various ways.  ...  In the model being developed all the elements of VON-BDI play a part in the determination of the revised set of desires, since it is reasonable to assume that current desires will influence future desires  ...

A Reasoning Module to Select ECA's Communicative Intention [chapter]

Jeremy Riviere, Carole Adam, Sylvie Pesty
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the context of a ECA-human interaction, we propose to create a BDI-like reasoning engine based on the agent's beliefs.  ...  This reasoning engine first aims to trigger the agent's emotions from its goals, beliefs, ideals and the notion of responsibility.  ...  Complex emotions are based upon the agent counterfactual reasoning and upon reasoning about responsibility, skills and social norms.  ...
