Programming multi-agent systems in AgentSpeak using Jason Bordini, Rafael H.

By: Bordini, Rafael H
Contributor(s): Hubner, Jomi Fred | Wooldridge, Michael
Publisher: Chichester Wiley 2007Description: xv, 273 p. ISBN: 9780470029008Subject(s): Intelligent agents (Computer software) | Computer programmingDDC classification: 006.33 Summary: Jason is an Open Source interpreter for an extended version of AgentSpeak a logicbased agentoriented programming language written in Java. It enables users to build complex multiagent systems that are capable of operating in environments previously considered too unpredictable for computers to handle. Jason is easily customisable and is suitable for the implementation of reactive planning systems according to the BeliefDesireIntention (BDI) architecture. Programming MultiAgent Systems in AgentSpeak using Jason provides a brief introduction to multiagent systems and the BDI agent architecture on which AgentSpeak is based. The authors explain Jasons AgentSpeak variant and provide a comprehensive, practical guide to using Jason to program multiagent systems. Some of the examples include diagrams generated using an agentoriented software engineering methodology particularly suited for implementation using BDIbased programming languages. The authors also give guidance on good programming style with AgentSpeak. Programming MultiAgent Systems in AgentSpeak using Jason Describes and explains in detail the AgentSpeak extension interpreted by Jason and shows how to create multiagent systems using the Jason platform. Reinforces learning with examples, problems, and illustrations. Includes two case studies which demonstrate the use of Jason in practice. Features an accompanying website that provides further learning resources including sample code, exercises, and slides This essential guide to AgentSpeak and Jason will be invaluable to senior undergraduate and postgraduate students studying multiagent systems. The book will also be of interest to software engineers, designers, developers, and programmers interested in multiagent systems.
