Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


A research into the efficient and effective reconsideration of intentions in autonomous belief-desire-intention (BDI) agents was presented. The reconsideration dependence on the environment in which an agent was situated, was investigated. The environments were characterized in terms of dynamism, determinism and accessibility, which represent the rate of change, the predictability of actions and the access to information in the environment. It was found that all characteristics influenced the effectiveness, such as a bold agent performs best in a static environment and a cautious agent performs best in a dynamic environment.
