Computational Architecture for BDI Agents
While many different and contrasting single-agent architectures have been proposed, perhaps the most successful are those based on the belief-desire-intention (BDI) framework. There is a wealth of research that has accumulated on both the formal and theoretical aspects of BDI agents through the use and development of various logics, for example, on the one hand, and on the practical aspects through the development of implementations of BDI agents on the other. Indeed, so many deliberative agent architectures and systems are based on the BDI framework that it is viewed as being as central to single-agent systems as the contract net is to multi-agent systems.
