Summary on Grant Application Form
Reasoning about intelligent agents in complex dynamic environments presents a major challenge in AI research. Such reasoning is crucial and pervasive to most agent applications. Yet, so far, progress has been slow and no standard methodologies are available. The project aims to apply the novel techniques developed in previous work by the applicants and to study to what extent these can be employed and adapted for reasoning about agent theories, focusing in particular on the verification and reasoning about typical complex interactions. This work presents a major challenge providing the opportunity for significant advances away from simple modal logics to complex combinations of modal and first-order logics, and away from model - theoretic decidability results to practical efficient automated decision procedures.
