Theories of Action, Planning, and Robot Control: Bridging the Gap
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Chitta Baral, Chair
The goal of the workshop is to bring together active researchers in the areas of theories of actions, planning and control architectures to discuss and analyze the interrelation between these areas, and to accelerate the interaction between them.
Specific topics of interest are:
- Identification of features in theories of actions that make it possible to develop efficient planning algorithms
- Study of the relation between the inference methods associated with logical formalizations of a particular theory of action and planning algorithms for that theory
- Exploration of advantages and disadvantages of generate and test planners. (Some possible advantages are easy incorporation of domain knowledge, easy incorporation of non-standard goals such as maintaining the value of a fluent etc.)
- Incorporation of aspects related to control (such as: execution of actions, knowledge producing actions, actions that may fail, etc.) into theories of actions; and other topics that relate to the interface between these areas.
The one and one-half day workshop will consist of tutorials, individual presentations and panel discussions.
