BEHAVIOR OF HOME CARE INTELLIGENT VIRTUAL AGENT WITH PRE-ThINK ARCHITECTURE

Dilyana Budakova

Abstract

This paper considers the architecture and the behaviour of an intelligent virtual agent, taking care of the cosiness and the health-related features of a family house. The PRE-ThINK architecture is proposed and its components are considered. The dynamics of the decision making process in problem situations arising with the implementation of this architecture is shown. It is assumed that an agent, capable of taking the best possible decision in a critical situation will win the family members’ trust.
