Abstract:

Introspection is the process of thinking about one's own thoughts and feelings. In this paper, the author discusses recent attempts to make computational systems that exhibit introspective behavior. Each presents a system capable of manipulating representations of its own program and current context. He argues that introspective ability is crucial for intelligent systems--without it an agent cannot represent certain problems that it must be able to solve. A theory of intelligent action would describe how and why certain actions intelligently achieve an agent's goals. The agent would both embody and represent this theory: it would be implemented as the program for the agent; and the importance of introspection suggests that the agent represent its theory of action to itself.
