Intelligent Agent Architectures: Combining the Strengths of Software Engineering and Cognitive Systems
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Randolph M. Jones, Program Chair
The Intelligent Agent Architectures: Combining the Strengths of Software Engineering and Cognitive Systems workshop focused on issues in the development of intelligent agent architectures that combine the functional structures and mechanisms of cognitive architectures with the software engineering principles that have been applied in various types of agent systems. Workshop presentations and discussions focused on developing a common vision for agent architecture frameworks that allow for the categorization, evaluation, and comparison of advanced agent architectures in a unified way. Such frameworks will aid the development of agent systems with human- level capabilities that incorporate signifi- cant amounts of knowledge. These frameworks will also facilitate the rapid development and efficient maintenance of knowledge-intensive agent models.
