BDI Model in Agent Reasoning
The reasoning is the process where the information is given and is compared with the known information or knowledge and come up with a reasoned conclusion. Reasoning skills can help in decision making, distinguishing situations and problems solving. To have agents involved in reasoning, they have to equipped with higher-level cognitive functions. For examples, beliefs and goals, actions, perception, plan coordination, the mental states of other agents and collaborative task execution.
The belief-desire-intention (BDI) model is an approach that contains various types of mental attributes and relationships. BDI model is a philosophical theory of the practical reasoning that is basically proposed by Bratman. This model consists of two steps: deliberation and means-ends reasoning (BDI4JADE, n.d.). Deliberation means that a set of desires is chosen and then to be carried out according to the current condition of the agent’s beliefs. The output of deliberation is intentions. Means-ends reasoning is the step that how the earlier step to be determined and can be accomplished according to the agent’s available choices and thus results in the specific goals.
BDI4JADE (n.d.) states that the BDI model has three parts of mental attitudes: beliefs, desires, and intentions. Beliefs means the information about the world or the knowledge of the world. After the perception of every operation and the execution of intentions, the environment characteristics are updated subsequently. Beliefs can be represented as the informative unit of the system. Desires represent the objectives to be accomplished also known as goals. They correspond to the tasks assigned to the agent. Desires is responsible to accomplish a belief, and to test a condition, and expressed a situation formula. The data of the goals to be accomplished is stored in this part. The motivational state of the system can also be represented in this stage. Intentions mean that the current processing plan is chosen to achieve the desire of the agent. The deliberation step is done in this stage as intentions are the output of deliberation.
According to BDI4JADE (n.d.), there are seven main components in a BDI agent:
BDI agents can also be used to solve problems with partial information in a complex and dynamic environment. For example: The OASIS (Optimal Aircraft Sequencing using Intelligent Scheduling) air-traffic management system (Innocentini, 2017).
According to Innocentini (2017), The OASIS is tested successfully at Sydney Airport in 1995. It is implemented using PRS (Procedural Reasoning Systems). It uses multiple agents. Each agent tracks the sub-problems and communicates between each other by using asynchronous messages. The list of agents is: SEQUENCER Agent, AIRCRAFT Agent, and WIND MODEL Agent. The possible BDI example int this scenario: 1) belief (the position of the plane); 2) desire (decrease the speed of aircraft); 3) intention (adopted plan). If there are changes in the environment, the intentions are reassessed.
“The role of analogy is to aid understanding rather than to provide justification.” To what extent do you agree with this statement? Human beings share a strong intuition that analogical justification forces us to better understand and interpret the situations that we face in our everyday lives. These analogies are widely recognized as playing an important role as a mental shortcut that allows people to solve problems and make judgments quickly and efficiently. Analogies provide insight and formulate possible solutions...
Chapter one: Introduction Calculus is the study of variation, and it is also the central subject in mathematics (Boyer, 1959; Goldstine, 2012; Tall, 1990). The concept of calculus is applied in statistics, science, economics, and engineering to study the concepts of gravity, speed, velocity, variations, growth or decay function, and maximum or minimum of profit and cost function (Boyer, 1959, Goldstine, 2012; Tall, 1992). Many of scientiﬁc and technological growth since 1900s to the current time are linked with the...
Modern AI Systems have seen some major advancements and breakthroughs in recent years. However, almost all of them use a bottom-down approach where machines are heavily trained in as many situations as possible to increase accuracy and minimize their margin or error. This is a rather inefficient and at times untrustworthy way to teach machines. This approach requires large amounts of ‘good data’ and even with that, it is always uncertain that AI can be trusted in abstract situations. Abductive...
There are many reasons why a student can demonstrate their understanding to core related content. External factors in a child life, such as reading or exposure to technology can expand the student’s prior knowledge to assist them in learning core-related material. As well as internal factors, such as the student’s mental capability of understanding content. These are a few explanations to support the theory of a student’s ability to grasp materials in a classroom. However, students can also show their...
In addition to conditional reasoning, the other key type of deductive reasoning is syllogistic reasoning, which is based on the use of syllogisms. Syllogisms are deductive arguments that involve drawing conclusions from two premises (Maxwell, 2005; Rips, 1994, 1999). All syllogisms comprise a major premise, a minor premise, and a conclusion. Categorical syllogism comprise of two premises and a conclusion. the premises state something about the category memberships of the terms. In fact, each term represents all, none, or some...
Legal reasoning is an old concept, capable of being found way back in the Roman times. Decisions were justified by reference to exemplar factual situations and reasoning of other jurists, often seemingly guided by own views. The current age decision-making contains slight differences. To understand why a judge argues a case in a certain way, it is necessary to consider the reasons used to justify his reasoning. As Hunh suggests, a judicial decision is capable of being reduced into a...
Philosophy is a perspective about the world, the universe, and society. It works by posing fundamental inquiries about the idea of human idea, the nature of the universe, and the associations between them. The thoughts in reasoning are regularly broad and dynamic. However, this doesn’t imply that way of thinking isn’t about this present reality. Morals, for instance, gets some information about how to be great in our everyday lives. Mysticism gets some information about how the world functions and...
Abstract An individual sees approximately 3000 ads per day and the number is not likely to reduce anytime soon. Hence we explore the various effects of advertising strategies employed on the individual. It addresses the various forms of advertisements that an individual is exposed to in their day-to-day lives as well as the effects of the various persuasive psychological techniques on the psyche of the individual. These include the use of color, heuristics, emotional conditioning, and personalization in advertisements. It...
Executive summary This study will focus on investigating and identifying the relationship between strategies and property tax collection in Tanzania. Specifically, it aims at examining the strategies for the improvement of property tax collection in government, identifying the major challenges confronting property tax collection, and suggests possible measures to overcome those challenges to increase revenue collection from the property owners. The study intends to involve 120 respondents from 4 wards of Ngaramtoni Township Authority at TRA-Arumeru in Arusha, Tanzania. The...
