Notes and Reading - Lecture #9

Lecture #9 was a seminar on Practical Reasoning Agents.


There are no notes for this lecture


The reading assignment for this seminar is:

M. E. Bratman, D. J. Israel and M. E. Pollack, Plans and resource-bounded practical reasoning, Computational Intelligence, 4, 349-355.
You can download it as above, or find it on Citeseer.

The questions you have to answer before class are:

  1. How close do you think the model described in the paper is to the way that you do practical reasoning?
  2. Which model from the lecture on practical reasoning (if any) does the model most closely
  3. What is the role of planning in the model?
  4. Pick one of the design problems posed in the conclusion and briefly say how you might overcome it.
Short answers (a couple of sentences) only are required, but I must have them midnight, the night before class.

Note that this seminar will be held in conjunction with the hybrid/reactive agents seminar in Lecture 11.
