To define the notion of intelligent agenter IA and to explain the main characteristics of IAs. To classify different types of IA architectures and their 'components' i.
To describe the propoerties of different types of agent environments and to be able to decide what kind of agent architecture is most suitable in each type of environment. To analyse and discuss differences and similarities, and advantages and disadvantages of different types of agents.
To explain different types of interactions in multiagents systems. To be able to use different types of interaction strategies.
To be able to analyse and determine which type of interaction is needed in a given multiagent environment. To describe the structure of an agent language, and to compare existing languages. Be able to use the agent languages in various agentinteraction settings. Lectures and exercises. Assignments are mandatory.
A rational agent always performs right action, where the right action means the action that causes the agent to be most successful in the given percept sequence. They choose their actions in order to achieve goals.
Goal-based approach is more flexible than reflex agent since the knowledge supporting a decision is explicitly modeled, thereby allowing for modifications. Goals have some uncertainty of being achieved and you need to weigh likelihood of success against the importance of a goal. Some programs operate in the entirely artificial environment confined to keyboard input, database, computer file systems and character output on a screen. In contrast, some software agents software robots or softbots exist in rich, unlimited softbots domains. The simulator has a very detailed, complex environment.
The software agent needs to choose from a long array of actions in real time.
A softbot designed to scan the online preferences of the customer and show interesting items to the customer works in the real as well as an artificial environment. The most famous artificial environment is the Turing Test environment , in which one real and other artificial agents are tested on equal ground. Peter Norvig , contributing Artificial Intelligence author and Professor Sebastian Thrun , a Pearson author are offering a free online course at Stanford University on artificial intelligence.

We will exist within an SCS as AI constructs hybrid instances of ourselves that may or may not resemble who we are. The Grammar of E Data abuse: Data use and surveillance in complex systems is designed for profit or for exercising power Most AI tools are and will be in the hands of companies striving for profits or governments striving for power. Aided by their access to vast troves of data about each of us, bots will far surpass humans in their ability to attract and persuade us. Skip to main content.
