Abstract The Belief--Desire--Intention (BDI) model of agency is an architecture based on Bratmanrsquos theory of practical reasoning. Hierarchical Task Network (HTN) decomposition on the other hand is a planning technique which has its roots in classical planning systems such as STRIPS. Despite being used for different purposes, HTN and BDI systems appear to have a lot of similarities in the problem solving approaches they adopt. This paper presents these similarities. A systematic method for mapping between the two systems is developed, and experimental results for different kinds of environments are presented.
