Outer entanglements: a general heuristic technique for improving the efficiency of planning algorithms

Lukáš Chrpa, Mauro Vallati, Thomas Leo McCluskey
2018 Journal of experimental and theoretical artificial intelligence (Print)  
However, there is no convention on the syntax or semantics of such additional knowledge, and thus domain-independent planning engines cannot benefit from it.  ...  The contribution of this paper is to provide an in depth analysis and evaluation of outer entanglements, including theoretical aspects such as complexity results.  ...  y) (unstack(a b)), then the atom is present in the initial state. Similarly, an entanglement by goal will capture that an atom on(b a) achieved by a corresponding instance of operator stack(?x ?  ...

Improved Resilience Controllers Using Cognitive Patterns

Ricardo Sanz, Carlos Hernandez, Julita Bermejo, Manuel Rodriguez, Ignacio Lopez
2014 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
A reference architecture for self-aware autonomous systems is synthesised from these patterns and demonstrated in the control of an autonomous mobile robot.  ...  An architecture-centric approach is strongly needed in robotics.  ...  Robot mission-level resilience is to be attained by maximising architectural adaptivity from a functional perspective (Houkes and Vermaas, 2010) .  ...

Quantum Biology at the Cellular Level - elements of the research program [article]

Michael Bordonaro, Vasily Ogryzko
2013 arXiv   pre-print
In the foregoing, we considered the mutation linked to phage induction from a "cell-centric" perspective, i.e., as an event causing the demise of the host cell.  ...  Not unlike prophage mutation, and despite being injurious to the host organism, tumor progression -considered from cell-centric perspective -easily lends itself to the adaptive evolutionary perspective  ...  Moreover, it is quite obvious that living systems exhibit organization at a much smaller level that nonliving ones so that a macroscopic part of a living organism has an environment differing very much  ...

Towards material anti-oligarchic constitutionalism

Camila Vergara
2022 Revus  
This was not only an ideological project but also a material one, considering that the constitution was drafted in the aftermath of a debt rebellion that set court houses on fire and sparked an armed insurrection  ...  Without a popular censorial power making sure elites are not self-serving, the American Constitution put “the fate of the State dependent on the degree of stubbornness or corruption in each branch.”52  ...

The Digi-Image Age and the Issue of Genericization of Truth in the Context of Comparative Religion

Ali Öztürk
2021 Ilahiyat Studies  
Unarguably, in addition to all its productions, the field in which digitalism most excels, owing to its inherent nature, is the adoption of an imaginary state of being as a database.  ...  This field, which we might refer to as the digi-image, has a significant impact on fields that can be changed into imaginary productions, such as belief, mystification, value, and culture, as well as the  ...  However, this kind of alienation is atomized on the ground, resulting in an infinite number of combinations (the interaction and displacement of the variables here are not only horizontal but also vertical  ...
