Dynamic desires (bibtex)
by M. Dastani, Z. Huang, L. van der Torre
Abstract:
Logics of desires, preferences and goals have recently been proposed in planning and agent theory. In this paper we use a dynamic logic with utilitarian goals and desires to discuss the relation between goals, desires and utilities. From a static point of view goals are defined using desires and beliefs, and desires are defined using the utility function and a context. The consequences for the dynamics are that utilities are the most stable, then desires, and goals change most often. We illustrate the use of the logic to formalize certain aspects of negotiation. In particular, we show how one agent can influence the behavior of another agent by influencing his desires.
