Go! agents go to the dance:a multi-paradigm symbolic language for multi-agent systems

   Abstract

Go! is a logic programming based language with distinct syntactic features that directly support functional and object oriented programming – the latter based on Logic and Objects’ style of classes. It is targeted at high integrity systems and at building agent systems. We have used Go! to elaborate an agent architecture which is based on the BDI principles but which supports concurrency internally and externally: beliefs are updated and accessed asynchronously within the agent by different modules with specific responsibilities – such as negotiation and world perception. In this talk I will introduce some of the key features of Go!, focusing on the newer aspects of its class notation. I will also show how an agent architecture such as outlined above can be easily built; in the context of a multi-agent demonstrator that uses agents negotiating over dances and drinks at a ball.
