In this paper we describe the implementation of interactive agents capable of gathering and extending their knowledge. Interactive agents are designed to perform tasks requested by a user in natural language. Using simple sentences the agent can answer questions and in case a task can not be fulfilled the agent must communicate with the user. In particular, an interactive agent can tell when necessary information for a task is missing, giving the user a chance to supply this information, which
