Agents as Intentional Systems

  • This intentional stance is an abstraction tool — a convenient way of talking about complex systems, which allows us to predict and explain their behavior without having to understand how the mechanism actually works
  • Now, much of computer science is concerned with looking for abstraction mechanisms (witness procedural abstraction, ADTs, objects,…)
    • So why not use the intentional stance as an abstraction tool in computing — to explain, understand, and, crucially, program computer systems?
  • This is an important argument in favor of agents
