Re-Membering: A Theory of Agents (Postion Paper)

Doug Riecken

This position paper provides an abstract discussion regarding current work to develop a design theory for the realization of a computer-based assistant composed of "societies of agents" based on Minsky’s Society of Mind theory. Specifically, the theory attempts to define a cognitive architecture to integrate various learning and reasoning processing. This work has resulted in the implementation of a prototype assistant, called MARVIN, which has been applied to support collaborative design and work in a multimedia desktop conferenclng system at AT&T Bell Laboratories.
