TY - JOUR TI - INCA: A cognitive multi-agents architecture for designing intelligent & adaptive learning systems AU - Nabeth Thierry AU - Razmerita Liana AU - Angehrn Albert AU - Roda Claudia JN - Computer Science and Information Systems PY - 2005 VL - 2 IS - 2 SP - 99 EP - 114 PT- Article AB- This paper presents a cognitive multi-agents architecture called Intelligent Cognitive Agents (InCA) that was elaborated for the design of Intelligent Adaptive Learning Systems. The InCA architecture relies on a personal agent that is aware of the user's characteristics, and that coordinates the intervention of a set of expert cognitive agents (such as story telling agents, assessment agents, stimulation agents or help agents). This InCA architecture has been applied for the design of K"InCA, an e-learning system aimed at helping people to learn and adopt knowledge-sharing management practices.
