Backward and Forward Reasoning in Agents

The reasoning core of hybrid agents, which exhibit both rational/deliberative and reactive behaviour, is a proof procedure (executed within an observe-think-act cycle) that combines forward and backward reasoning:

Backward Reasoning: Used primarily for planning, problem solving and other deliberative activities.

Forward Reasoning: Used primarily for reactivity to the environment, possibly including other agents.
