Autonomous agents and social norms

By F.P.M. Dignum


In this paper we present concepts and their relations that are necessary for mod-\ud eling autonomous agents in an environment that is governed by some (social) norms.\ud We divide the norms over three levels: the private level the contract level and the\ud convention level. We show how deontic logic can be used to model the concepts and\ud how the theory of speech acts can be used to model the generation of (some of)\ud the norms. Finally we give some idea about an agent architecture incorporating the\ud social norms based on a BDI framework
