Agent decision using argumentation about actions
In this paper we consider how a BDI agent might determine its best course of action. We draw on previous work which has presented a model of persuasion over action and which extends the account of Walton. We propose a formalism based upon this model which extends the BDI agent architecture to include the notion of value functions. This enables us to make use of an argumentation framework in order to resolve conflicts over values. This formalism will allow BDI agents to reason and argue about practical action, in accordance with this model.[Full Paper]
