A General Purpose Vision System (GPVS) is an open and domain-independent system that is able to build, maintain, and use an internal representation of the external world from data provided by physical sensors such as cameras. The experience in constructing the Vision As Process (VAP) and SATURNE...
The paper identifies generality and power (processing work per unit time) as two major but conflicting requirements for the design of autonomous intelligent agents. A separation of these two concerns leads to the notion of a variable degree of causal coupling between parts of a mechanism and its...
Distributed Artificial Intelligent (DAI) researchers have long been interested in the question of how to resolve conflicts among cooperative agents in distributed problem solving environments. Negotiation has been suggested by many researchers as an important technique to resolve conflicts....
As part of an effort to define a unified formal semantics for beliefs, desires and action, this paper sketches a model theory for the axiological aspects of agent theory: hedonic states, likes, goals and values. It pays particular attention to modelling the intensity of likes. The main intuition...
This paper addresses the question of how to exploit emergent behaviour in the design of multi-agent systems. The method advocated is to design the individual agents so that they maintain symbolic representations of emergent behaviour which can then be used as a basis for building higher level...
In multiagent planning an agent sometimes needs to collaborate with others to construct complex plans, or to accomplish large organizational tasks which he cannot do alone. Since each agent in a group may have incorrect beliefs about the world, and because agent's abilities differ, construction...
The topic of this paper is a representation model for solid objects used for physical simulation purposes and for planning in a robot assembly system. The system combines analogical representation and multi-agent modelling, using a bottom-up representation for objects based on analogical agents....
The formalization of multi-agent autonomous systems requires a rich ontology for capturing a variety of collective behaviours and a powerful semantics for distinguishing between collective agents having, executing, and jointly intending a plan. In this paper, we introduce the notion of social...
The main thesis of this work is that human interactions are neither unpredictable nor bounded, but they are undertaken autonomously on the grounds of a number of basic principles and conditions. Among these, a crucial role is played by the objective dependence relationships holding among agents....
Larger, more complex, and more adaptive multi-agent systems will require us to think carefully about several new issues. Three of these are boundaries, identity , and aggregation . The difficulty of dealing with these is compounded without a clear idea of the nature of plurality and...
