This paper proposes the notion of experience to help situate agents in their environment, providing a link on how the continually evolving environment impacts the evolution of an agent's BDI model and vice versa. Then, using the notion of shared experience as a primitive construct, we develop a novel formal model of shared intention which we believe more adequately describes social behaviour than traditional BDI logics that focus on individual agents. Whilst many philosophers have argued that collective intentionality cannot always be equated to the collection of the individual agents' intentions, there has been no AI model that addresses this issue. We believe this is the first attempt to develop an explicit notion of shared experience from an AI perspective. © 2013 IEEE.
