Abstract:We present a proposal to characterize sapient agents in terms of cognitive concepts and abilities. In particular, a sapient agent is considered as a cognitive agent that learns its cognitive state and capabilities through experience. This characterization is based on formal concepts such as beliefs, goals, plans and reasoning rules, and formal techniques such as relational RL. We identify several aspects of cognitive agents that can be evolved through learning and indicate how these aspects can be learned. Other important features such as the social environment, interaction with other agents or humans and the ability to deal with emotions, will also be discussed. Finally, the directions for further research on sapient agents are described.
