An Etymological and Metamodel-Based Evaluation of the Terms ‘Goals and Tasks’ in Agent-Oriented Methodologies

By: Brian Henderson-Sellers, Quynh-Nhu Numi Tran, John Debenham

Abstract

While there are many individual models of agent architecture, there is a general agreement that agents are able to act without the intervention of humans or other systems. They have control both over their own internal state and over their behaviour. This may be achieved by some mechanism that determines which goals they should commit to achieving and then which decisions need to be taken in order to reach those goals.
