This paper presents the Emotional-Belief-Desire-Intention architecture which reflects humans’ practical reasoning by adding the influence of primary and secondary emotions into the decision making process of a traditional BDI architecture. Our architecture handles bounded resources by using primary emotions as the first filter for adjusting the priority of beliefs, thereby allowing the agents to speed up decision making. Secondary emotions are used to refine the decision when time permits. We present a sample EBDI agent for the Tileworld domain in order to show our architecture might be used.
