Belief Update in AgentSpeak-DL



In previous work (Moreira et al, DALT 2005) we proposed an extension
for the belief base of AgentSpeak agents
based on Description Logic (DL), aiming at enabling agent oriented
programming to cope with recently proposed
technologies for the Semantic Web. In such an extension an agent
belief base contains the
definition of complex concepts, besides specific factual knowledge.
The foreseen advantages are: (i) more expressive queries to the belief
base; (ii) a refined notion
of belief update, which considers consistency of a belief addition;
(iii) flexibility in plan searching allowed
by subsumption relation between concepts; and (iv) knowledge sharing
in a semantic web context (based on OWL).
Following this proposal an extension of the well know Agent Speak
interpreter, Jason, was presented by K
lapiscak and Bordini in DALT 2008. Among the interesting open issues
is how to deal with the addition of
beliefs which violates ontology consistency. In this work
discuss this problem related to
ABox updating in the context of AgentSpeak-DL.
