Cognitive Robotics: Papers From The 1998 AAAI Fall Symposium


In this paper, our ongoing work on a hybrid, connectionist and belief-desire-intention (BDI) based, rational agent architecture is described. The architecture makes specific commitments in order to achieve a harmony among the tasks of reasoning and acting. The architecture uses a bottom-up learning strategy to acquire rules for reactive behavior.
