BDI and QDT: a comparison based on classical decision theory (bibtex)
by M. Dastani, J. Hulstijn, L. van der Torre
Abstract:
In this paper we compare Beliefs-Desire-Intention sys- tems (BDI systems) with Qualitative Decision Theory (QDT). Our analysis based on classical decision theory illustrates several issues where one area may profit from research in the other area. BDI has studied how inten- tions link subsequent decisions, whereas QDT has stud- ied methods to calculate candidate goals from desires, and how to derive intentions from goals. We also dis- cuss the role of goals and norms in both approaches.
