Active Sequential Hypothesis Testing (ASHT) is an extension of the classical sequential hypothesis testing problem with controls. Chernoff  proposed a policy called Procedure A and showed its asymptotic optimality as the cost of sampling was driven to zero. In this paper we study a further extension where we introduce costs for switching of actions. We show that a modification of Chernoff's Procedure A, one that we call Sluggish Procedure A, is asymptotically optimal even with switchingdoi:10.1109/ita.2015.7308961 dblp:conf/ita/VaidhiyanS15 fatcat:5hwmwomklfaknnupd7aveutrmu
