Translation-based approaches to conformant and contingent planning

Translation-based approaches to conformant and contingent planning

This video was recorded at 21st International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling. Conformant planning is the problem of finding a sequence of actions for achieving a goal in the presence of uncertainty in the initial state or in action effects. On the other hand, Contingent planning is concerned with the problem of achieving goals in the presence of incomplete information and sensing actions. Both problems have been approached as a path-finding problem in belief space where good belief representations and heuristics are critical for scaling up. In this tutorial, we present algorithms for both conformant and contingent planning that rely on translations to classical planning problems, solved by an off-the-shelf classical planner. The first half of this 1.5 hours tutorial will be... Show More
