Multi-agent development environment (MADE) and its applications.
Date of Issue2007

Agent technology represents a new software paradigm. The autonomous, intelligent and goal-oriented characteristics make agent technology a promising solution for the next generation of software products. However, despite of enormous research efforts on agent modelling, there is still a lack of widespread deployment of agent systems. The major reason is that the research narrowing the gap between agent mental state design and agent implementation is rare. This thesis presents a comprehensive agent development environment to facilitate the agent system design and development.
