Abstract: 
Artificial agents represent a new paradigm in software engineering and Artificial Intelligence. As complex software-controlled systems they are capable of flexible autonomous behavior in dynamic and unpredictable environments. Over the past few years, researchers in computer science have begun to recognise that the technology of artificial agents provides the key to solving many problems in distributed computing and intelligent control, for which traditional software engineering techniques offer no solution. The field of logic programming includes many important concepts, such as declarativity, unification, meta-logic programming, and deduction rules, from which the new technology of multiagent systems can benefit.
