In this chapter, the authors present an intention-based decision-making system. They exhibit a coherent combination of two Logic Programming-based implemented systems, Evolution Prospection and Intention Recognition. The Evolution Prospection system has proven to be a powerful system for decision-making, designing, and implementing several kinds of preferences and useful environment-triggering constructs. It is here enhanced with an ability to recognize intentions of other agents-an important aspect not well explored so far. The usage and usefulness of the combined system are illustrated with several extended examples in different application domains, including Moral Reasoning, Ambient Intelligence, Elder Care, and Game Theory.
