In the overdue Nineteen Nineties, AI witnessed an expanding use of the time period 'argumentation' inside of its bounds: in normal language processing, in person interface layout, in common sense programming and nonmonotonic reasoning, in Al's interface with the felony group, and within the newly rising box of multi-agent structures. It appeared to me that lots of those makes use of of argumentation have been encouraged by means of (of­ ten encouraged) guesswork, and nice majority of the AI group have been unaware that there has been a maturing, wealthy box of study in Argumentation idea (and serious considering and casual good judgment) that were gradually re­ development a scholarly method of the realm over the former two decades or so. Argumentation conception, on its facet; used to be constructing theories and techniques that many within the box felt may have a task extra largely in learn and soci­ ety, yet have been for the main half unaware that AI was once the most effective applicants for such application.

Ca 15 C. J. ), Argumentation Machines: New Frontiers in Argument and Computation, 15-54. © 2003 Kluwer Academic Publishers. 1 Recent work in argumentation theory and informal (practical) logic has developed certain tools that seem to be useful and applicable to multi-agent systems in which participants need to interact. Multiple interacting agents that engage in persuasive dialogue, negotiation and the construction of joint plans of action have the potential to provide argumentation theory with a means to implement and evaluate their theories.

Mary answers, 'Behind the door, as Argument and Multi-Agent Systems 31 usual'. Here, Mary has not committed herself to any extra-dialogical action, but to the proposition that the garbage is behind the door. She is bound not to subsequently deny that the garbage is behind the door and, in both cases, John is entitled to complain if he discovers the garbage is not there. It is clear that, in dialogue, commitment to propositions may occur in many circumstances. This propositional commitment is, however, not explicitly discussed in the multi-agent systems literature, despite the fact that the most commonly used communicative acts are indicatives (or assertions) such as inform and tell.

At present, however, this interest in argument has not influenced the specification of agent communication languages and protocol standards. Agent communication languages (referred to as ACLs) are, in common with the typical models of the internal state of agents, specified in terms of intentional states. Inspired by the speech act model of communication (Austin, 1976; Searle, 1969; Searle and Vanderveken, 1985), these languages provide a set of performatives: a concept that conveys the idea that by utterances many things can be done besides making a statement.
