© Eric Yu 2001 5 Agent-Oriented Software Situated sense the environment and perform actions that change the environment Autonomous have control over their own actions and internal states can act without direct intervention from humans Flexible responsive to changes in environment, goal-oriented, opportunistic, take initiatives Social interact with other artificial agents and humans to complete their tasks and help others Jennings, Sycara, Wooldridge (1998) A Roadmap of Agent Research & Development. Autonomous Agents & Multi-Agent Systems journal.
© Eric Yu 2001 6 But why Agent Orientation? The “world” (application environment) has become more distributed, autonomous, networked… I.e. the agent properties are being found in the world. E.g. E-commerce, e-health, e-learning, groupwork, kn mgt Question is: how to make the software systems meet these desired properties (in the world) That’s the job of RE (and SE). But previously, no way of expressing these properties. RE languages need to be social, intentional. Most AOSE methodologies focus the system, not on relationship to the world
© Eric Yu 2001 7 Requirements Engineering relationship between system and environment. Bubenko (1980), Greenspan (1982), Jackson (1983)… Traditional focus: consistency, completeness, … e.g., “Three Dimensions of RE” Pohl (1993) informal -> formal (representation) opaque -> complete (specification) personal view -> common view (agreement) Suitable for a more stable, non-distributed world Recent: goals, scenarios, agents See overview in van Lamsweerde (ICSE 2000)
© Eric Yu 2001 8 Ontologies for Modelling Static Ontologies Dynamic Ontologies Intentional OntologiesIntentional Ontologies Social OntologiesSocial Ontologies [J. Mylopoulos CAiSE 97 Keynote] Most current conceptions and models of information systems are based on static and dynamic ontologies. business process models workflow models enterprise models … UML
© Eric Yu 2001 9 A typical process model … but we need deeper understanding! Automobile insurance claims example
© Eric Yu 2001 10 … a deeper understanding about processes Car owner wants car to be repaired Insurance company wants to minimize claims payout Car owner wants fair appraisal of repairs Insurance agent wants to maintain good customer relations
© Eric Yu 2001 11 Modelling Strategic Actor Relationships and Rationales - the i* modelling framework –have goals, beliefs, abilities, commitments –depend on each other for goals to be achieved, tasks to be performed, resources to be furnished –are semi-autonomous -- not fully knowable / controllable
© Eric Yu 2001 12 Strategic Dependency Relationship Actor A I want … Actor B I can … DD Car Be Repaired
© Eric Yu 2001 13 i* objectives, premises, key concepts Actors are semi-autonomous, partially knowable Strategic actors, intentional dependencies have choice, reasons about alternate means to ends means-ends alternatives DD wants and abilities
© Eric Yu 2001 14 i* modeling 1.explicit intentionality goals 2. implicit intentionality agents functional decomposition means-ends alternatives wants and abilities inputs outputs DD

Kluwer Academic Publishers.]
