Choosing Your Beliefs

pdf-format:


Abstract

This paper presents and discusses a novel approach to indeterministic
belief revision. An indeterministic belief revision operator assumes
that, when an agent is confronted with a new piece of information, it
can revise its belief sets in more than one way. We define a rational
agent not only in terms of what it believes but also of what it desires
and wants to achieve. Hence, we propose that the agent's goals play a
role in the choice of (possibly) one of the several available revision
options. Properties of the new belief revision mechanism are also
investigated.
