280: Selected topics in Automated reasoning (4), Thursdays 2:00-4:20.
The seminar will focus on current issues in the following areas:
- Probabilistic networks and constraint networks: Inference and modeling, focusing on application areas such as planning, scheduling and diagnosis.
- Planning and reasoning under unceratainty. We will look into models such as Markov decision processes (MDP's) and partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDP).
Students will be encouraged to find a research project
around which they will read, present and discuss current papers.
Possible sources for papers:
- UAI-98 (Uncertainty in AI), AAAI-98, and CP-98 (Constraint Programming).
