Rational Engines for BDI Architectures

Deepak Kumar

The work presented here has evolved from research involved in extending a semantic network-based KRR system, SNePS (whose rational engine called SNeRE is described in [Kumar 1993a]), into a BDI architecture. In this paper we use an object-oriented approach to describe the BDI architecture. The resulting architecture is independent of, yet isomorphic to, the SNePS KRR formalism. The resulting BDI architecture enjoys all the advantages of object-oriented design-- the ontology is easily extendible, as is the underlying logic, and amenable to a concurrent implementation [Kumar 1993b].
