2014 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
Thus, they require mechanisms for acquiring and accepting norms, determining when norms are relevant to their case, and making decisions about norm compliance.  ...  In this paper, we propose a multi -context graded BDI architecture (called n-BDI) that models norm-autonomous agents able to deal with uncertainty in dynamic environments.  ...  Multi-context Graded BDI Architecture A norm-autonomous agent is defined in this paper as a practical reasoning agent [14] whose actions are directed towards its internal goals and the norms that regulate  ...

Paulo H. C. Alves, Marx L. Viana, Carlos J. P. De Lucena
2017 Proceedings of the 29th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering  
However, norms eventually can be conflicting -for example, when there is a norm that prohibits an agent to perform a particular action and another norm that obligates the same agent to perform the same  ...  Norms exist to avoid and solve conflicts, make agreements, reduce complexity, and in general to achieve a desirable social order.  ...  For instance, the n-BDI architecture defined by Criado et al.

Noe: Norms Emergence and Robustness Based on Emotions in Multiagent Systems [article]

Sz-Ting Tzeng
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We find that an ability in agents to consider emotional responses to the outcomes of norm satisfaction and violation (1) promotes norm compliance; and (2) improves societal welfare.  ...  To achieve agent autonomy and make norm satisfaction explainable, we include emotions into the normative reasoning process, which evaluates whether to comply or violate a norm.  ...  Acknowledgments STT and MPS thank the NSF for partial support under grant IIS-1908374.

N-Jason: Run-Time Norm Compliance in AgentSpeak(L) [chapter]

JeeHang Lee, Julian Padget, Brian Logan, Daniela Dybalova, Natasha Alechina
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To be able to process a norm such as an obligation, the agent architecture must be able to deal with deadlines and priorities, and choose between plans triggered by a particular norm.  ...  This paper describes how norm awareness enables a BDI agent to exhibit norm compliant behaviour at run-time taking into account normative factors.  ...  Introduction In conventional BDI agents, norm compliance is typically achieved by design.  ...

Towards polite virtual agents using social reasoning techniques

JeeHang Lee, Tingting Li, Julian Padget
2013 Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds  
With this architecture, we demonstrate (i) specifying polite behaviours as a form of social norms, (ii) generating polite behaviours using social reasoning technique, (iii) deliberation with such norms  ...  To do so, we propose a high level agent architecture combined with normative framework to model and reason about "polite" behaviours in social situations.  ...  From an architectural perspective, multiple institutional models and related decision making mechanism in BDI agents will be explored with the aim of providing a similar circumstance with real human society  ...
