A Framework for Creating Societies of Agents
The ADN project constitutes a generic tool for the analysis and development of distributed intelligent agents. The introduction presents the impetus driving ADN as well as a brief history of the project. Next, the parallel between cognitive psychology and the knowledge modeling architecture are laid open. A brief description of ADN’s functionalities is also presented.
