Abstract

This article discusses a formal belief, desire, intention (BDI)-based agent model for theory of mind (ToM). The model uses BDI concepts to describe the reasoning process of an agent that reasons about the reasoning process of another agent, which is also based on BDI concepts. We discuss three different application areas and illustrate how the model can be applied to each of them. We explore a case study for each of the application areas and apply our model to it. For each case study, a number of simulation experiments are described, and their results are discussed. Copyright © 2011 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
