An Introduction to Classical Single and Multi-Agent Planning

Monday, July 14, 2014, 11:00am – 12:45pm
Presented by Ronen Brafman
Located in Room 2041

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.
