An Architecture for Rational Agents

pdf-format:


Abstract

This paper is concerned with designing architectures for rational agents.
In the proposed architecture, agents have belief bases that are theories
in a multi-modal, higher-order logic.
Belief bases can be modified by a belief acquisition algorithm
that includes both symbolic, on-line learning and conventional knowledge base
update as special cases.
A method of partitioning the state space of the agent in two different ways
leads to a Bayesian network and associated influence diagram for selecting actions.
The resulting agent architecture exhibits a tight integration between logic,
probability, and learning.
This approach to agent architecture is illustrated by a user agent
that is able to personalise its behaviour according to the user's
interests and preferences.
