Modelling an Academic Curriculum Plan as a Mixed-Initiative Constraint Satisfaction Problem [chapter]

Kun Wu, William S. Havens
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The second phase involves a semisystematic local search, which supports mixed-initiative user interaction and control of the search process.  ...  Part of the challenge in curriculum scheduling is handling multiple possible schedules that are equivalent under symmetry. We show to overcome these symmetries in the search process.  ...  If no value in the live domain can pass the consistency check, which means no value in the live domain of current variable is consistent with all assigned variables, then backtrack is needed.  ...

Planning in a multi-agent environment

Jürgen Dix, Héctor Muñoz-Avila, Dana Nau, Lingling Zhang
2002 Proceedings of the first international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems part 2 - AAMAS '02  
We give the theoretical foundations and empirical evaluation of a planning agent, shop, performing HTN planning in a multi-agent environment. shop is based on A-SHOP, an agentized version of the original  ...  As a result, we noticed that in such realistic settings the time spent on communication (including network time) is orders of magnitude higher than the actual inference process.  ...  The selection of the route depends on the transportation vehicle used and may lead to backtracking.  ...

Diagnosing Vision-and-Language Navigation: What Really Matters [article]

Wanrong Zhu, Yuankai Qi, Pradyumna Narayana, Kazoo Sone, Sugato Basu, Xin Eric Wang, Qi Wu, Miguel Eckstein, William Yang Wang
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We find unbalanced attention on the vision and text input and doubt the reliability of such cross-modal alignments.  ...  Moreover, the agents' inner mechanisms for navigation decisions remain unclear. To the best of our knowledge, how the agents perceive the multimodal input is under-studied and needs investigation.  ...  Noyce Trust for their generous gift to the University of California via the Noyce Initiative.
