Agents as Intentional Systems

  • The intentional notions are thus abstraction tools, which provide us with a convenient and familiar way of describing, explaining, and predicting the behavior of complex systems
  • Remember: most important developments in computing are based on new abstractions:
    • procedural abstraction
    • abstract data types
    • objects
  • Agents, and agents as intentional systems, represent a further, and increasingly powerful abstraction
  • So agent theorists start from the (strong) view of agents as intentional systems: one whose simplest consistent description requires the intentional stance
