About this book

This book presents TDF (Tactics Development Framework), a practical methodology for eliciting and engineering models of expert decision-making in dynamic domains. The authors apply the BDI (Beliefs, Desires, Intentions) paradigm to the elicitation and modelling of dynamic decision making expertise, including team behaviour, and map it to a diagrammatic representation that is intuitive to domain experts.

The book will be of value to researchers and practitioners engaged in dynamic decision making.

Reviews

“It will certainly be of interest to those who are modeling military scenarios, or scenarios that can be described in terms of tactics, strategy, and interactions, both adversarial and cooperative, and to users of the Prometheus methodology and the JACK framework.” (H. Van Dyke Parunak, Computing Reviews, October 21, 2019)
