Refinement of intentions

Abstract : According to Bratman, future-directed intentions are high-level plans. We view such plans as high-level actions that can typically not be executed directly: they have to be progressively refined until executable basic actions are obtained. Higher- and lower-level actions are linked by the means-end relation, alias instrumentality relation. In this paper we extend Shoham’s database perspective of Bratman’s theory by the notions of refinement and instrumentality.
