The purpose of this panel is to discuss the implications for commonsense knowledge representation and
reasoning of implementing a robot/agent with all or most of the following characteristics:
· The agent can act.
· The agent can perceive.
· The agent can communicate with humans.
· The agent does first-person reasoning: the knowledge base and reasoning are the beliefs and reasoning
of the agent, rather than about it.
