This talk presents a declarative, logic-based language called ALM, dedicated to the representation of knowledge about dynamic domains in which change is caused by action. Theoretically, such dynamic domains can be specified by transition diagrams. In practice, though, a domain may often have a large, complex, and difficult to specify transition diagram. Action languages were introduced as one of the solutions to the problem of describing transition diagrams in a concise and precise manner. Traditional action languages, however, are not suitable for representing large scale domains. My goal was to design a modular action language, ALM, that addresses this problem. ALM is intended to facilitate the creation of large knowledge bases and library modules. Such knowledge bases can then be used to build intelligent agents that can reason and act in a wide variety of changing environments.
