Plans and Goals

Kbase Thing

A plan is a sequence of steps which, when performed in a given temporal order, serve to carry out certain tasks or to accomplish a certain goal.

Goals. Typically, Cyc thinks of goals as characterizing relationships holding between Cyc formulas and a particular agent when the formula describes a state of affairs that the agent intends to take steps to actualize, i.e., when actualizing the state of affairs is a goal of the agent. However, it might also be seen as an attribute of the relationship between the agent and the static situation depicted by that Cyc formula.
