AIC Seminar Series

Domain-independent planning for composing services

Eirini KaldeliUniversity of Groningen[Home Page]

Notice:  Hosted by Richard Waldinger. Note the unusual time and weekday (Friday 3pm)

Location:  EJ228 (SRI E building)  (Directions)

   Abstract

Service domains constitute an application field where automated planning can significantly contribute towards achieving more customisable compositions, and pose a number of interesting problems to the AI community. Following the vision to use domain-independent planning for generating compositions based on atomic service descriptions, I will show how a CSP-based planning framework, equipped with a declarative extended goal language, can meet the requirements posed by two different application areas: a smart home equipped with intelligent devices exposed as services, and a domain consisting of Web Services offering a number of different functionalities. The main characteristics of the planner include accommodating for incomplete knowledge through active sensing and re-planning, support for continuous context update, and for variables ranging over large domains. Evaluation for a number of different scenarios including real users and services is provided, which indicate that the planner can satisfy a variety of different needs with minimum reconfiguration.
