Title:Plan Execution in an Environmental Domain
Date: 1995
Abstract:PARETO is a plan execution system described in [Pryor 94] to study how an intelligent agent can achieve its goals in an unpredictable world. The original world operated by PARETO is a delivery truck world where the major role of PARETO is to perform delivery requests by executing a hierarchy of sketchy plans. This thesis is concerned with adapting and extending PARETO to operate in a simulated ecosystem. The major tasks which are described in this thesis are the design of an ecological simulation system suitable for PARETO and construction of an interface layer between PARETO and the simulated ecosystem. The ultimate contribution of this project is to investigate the applicability of PARETO in an environmental domain other than the delivery truck world it was originally designed for.
