Master Seminar Kognitive Systeme (WS 2013/2014)

Topic: Heuristic Planning

Modern automated planners are usually based on on heuristic search. Based on knowledge gained in the lecture "Intelligente Agenten" we will investigate the heuristics part of automated planning. The seminar will focus on informed search algorithms and heuristics for automated planning. Furthermore we will learn about adaptive heuristic (search), the International Planning Competition, and modern planning systems.
