A framework for organization and representation on concept knowledge in autonomous agents

Davidsson, Paul (1993) In Scandinavian Conference on Artificial Intelligence - 93, SCAI-93 : proceedings of the fourth Scandinavian Conference on Artificial Intelligence p.183-193
Abstract
In this paper the problems of organization and representation of concept

knowledge are addressed from an autonomous agent perspective. The first part of the

paper discusses the question of why an autonomous agent needs concepts at all and

what other uses it can make of them. After the necessary and/or desirable functions

of concepts have been identified, previous attempts to represent concepts are briefly

surveyed to see if they support these functions. The result of the survey is negative in

the sense that none of these single and simple representations are powerful enough to

meet the discussed requirements. Moreover, this result indicates that, to support all the

In this paper the problems of organization and representation of concept

knowledge are addressed from an autonomous agent perspective. The first part of the

paper discusses the question of why an autonomous agent needs concepts at all and

what other uses it can make of them. After the necessary and/or desirable functions

of concepts have been identified, previous attempts to represent concepts are briefly

surveyed to see if they support these functions. The result of the survey is negative in

the sense that none of these single and simple representations are powerful enough to

meet the discussed requirements. Moreover, this result indicates that, to support all the

necessary and/or desirable functions, a structured composite representation is needed.

Such a structure is then suggested, followed by a short discussion concerning which

kinds of representations are adequate for the different parts of the structure. (Less)
