Intelligent Agents

Intelligent Agents

This video was recorded at Summer Schools in Logic and Learning, Canberra 2009. An agent is an entity that receives percepts from the environment in which it is operating and applies actions to the environment in order to achieve its goals. The notion of an agent provides a unifying conceptual framework for current research in artificial intelligence. In these three lectures, I will introduce the basic ideas of agents, describe some agent architectures, and comment briefly on relevant philosophical and historical issues.
