AIC Seminar Series

Temporal Reasoning with Preferences and Probabilities

Robert A. MorrisNASA Ames Research Center

Date:  2005-03-10 at 16:00

Location:  EJ228  (Directions)

   Abstract

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.
