In an uncertain world, a rational planner must simultaneously reason
with beliefs about expected outcomes of actions and preferences for
those outcomes. Computational challenges arise in automating such
reasoning from the need to develop efficient inference techniques over a
potentially very large space of outcomes. This work provides an overview of
a method for systematically exploring the interactions between preferences for the
durations of events, and beliefs, expressed as probability distributions
about when certain events will occur. This talk also describes an application of this
work to scheduling remote sensing activities on Earth observing systems.
