I've been lurking here for a while now and thought I had something to add for the first time, so Hi all, thanks for all the great content and concepts; on to the good stuff:

I think a good open problem for the list would be: a formal (or a good solid) defintion of rationality. I know of things like BDI architecture and pareto optimality but how do these things apply to a human rational being. For that matter, how do you reason logically/formally about a human being? What would be a good abstraction/structure, are there any guidelines?

well, just my 2 formal cents.
