I will provide a short introduction to AI planning, and in particular, planning via heuristic forward search, covering a few methods for heuristic generation. I will then describe MA-STRIPS, an extension of the classical STRIPS model, to multi-agent planning, and discuss some algorithms for solving problems in this model. The level of the introduction will depend on the student’s background.
The participants are expected to know the basics of search. Reading the relevant chapter in Russell & Norvig would do.
