Metareasoning, Monitoring, and Self-Explanation

(p.131) 9 Metareasoning, Monitoring, and Self-Explanation

Michael T. Cox

The MIT Press

This chapter examines the potential that the monitoring of reasoning provides and considers what implications exist. For metareasoning in agent-based systems, the self is the object of the processing, yet for many researchers the centrality of this statement is left wholly implicit. The chapter briefly discusses four characteristics or aspects of self from a computational stance: self-modifying code, self-knowledge, self-understanding, and self-explanation. After discussing the issue of evaluation, it concludes by enumerating some outstanding problems related to metareasoning.

Keywords:   metareasoning, agent-based systems, self, self-modifying code, self-knowledge, self-understanding, self-explanation
