Modeling Agents and their Environment: The Communication Environment

By: James Odell, H. Van Dyke Parunak, Mitchell Fleischer

Abstract

Without an environment, an agent is effectively useless. Cut off from the rest of its world, the agent can neither sense nor act. An environment provides the conditions under which an entity (agent or object) can exist. It defines the properties of the world in which an agent will function. Designing effective agents requires careful consideration of both the physical and communicational aspects of their environment.
