LightJason is a concurrent BDI multi-agent framework for creating multi-agent systems with Java.

Multi-agent systems are generally considered a sub-discipline of Artificial Intelligence. We try to create a framework which allows to add AI algorithms to an existing software architecture as a mainly side-effect free programming language. The framework combines classical Artificial Intelligence methods with optimisation and fuzzy-logics concepts on a high-scalable concurrency architecture.

The project is inspired by AgentSpeak(L) and Jason, but designed and implemented from scratch. LightJason is fine-tuned to concurrent plan execution suitable for distributed computing environments and aims at efficient and scalable integration with existing platforms. As a language to design agents, this framework uses AgentSpeak(L++), a modular extension of AgentSpeak(L), including new features, e.g.

LightJason is developed by using state-of-the-art software development technologies.

One of our main objective is to publish a framework which can be used in productive systems and is understandable also for non-computer scientists. We try to close the gap between modelling aspects, performance and scalability, and human-understandable cleanly written source code.
