In the last five years multi-agent systems have been a major focus of research in AI. The concept of agents, in particular the role of agents as participants in multi-agent systems, has been subject to discussion. In [Wooldridge and Jennings, 1995] different notions of strong and weak agency are presented. In other contexts big and small agents have been distinguished [Velde and Perram, 1996]. In this paper, a model for a rational agent is proposed: a rational agent described using cognitive notions such as beliefs, desires and intentions.
