COMPLEXITY ANALYSIS OF A SOCIALLY AWARE BDI-AGENT
Abstract: This BDI-model (beliefs, desires and intents) is a very commonly used method for modeling intelligent agents. The model is very commonly extended with new features and attributes. This thesis presents a new such extension of the BDI-model with added social awareness. Multi-agent system can be very computationally complex so in order to find out how well this architecture would work, a complexity analysis was made. The results of this analysis shows that the agent always will select a goal that appears to be desirable by other agents in the environment. It does however come with a computational cost where the amount of different options the agent has to choose from plays a big part in the speed of the algorithm.
