Abstract : For complex tasks, it is useful to view the components of distributed systems as specialized intelligent agents, each planning in cooperation with the others to achieve certain goals. This project involves research in the reasoning abilities of the individual agents and in interagent coordination and communication strategies. In particular, the following research areas have been or are currently being addressed: (1) the architectural design of an autonomous agent acting in a dynamic environment, especially the integration of reactive and strategic planning; (2) reasoning with analogical representations, particularly with respect to using and learning maps; and (3) models of intention and belief, and computations methods for reasoning about them.
