- Class presentation about a planning system. Plan for 2-2.5 hour presentation.
- Students have until Friday, the week before their class
presentation to meet with the instructor
- For that meeting the student should have finished most of the slides
and have their assigned system installed and running.
- The instructor will go through your presentation and will give
feedback on things to change. At the same time
the instructor will ascertain that the student do understand
the material that they are going to present.
- Report on performance comparision of various systems as explained in the
powerpoint document below. Assigned domains:
- Saptarshi Kar: Freecell domain
- Catherine Elizabeth Welsh: Logistics Trasnportation domain
- Sudhan Kanitkar: Schedule domain
- Joe Souto: Tyreworld
- Hai Hoang: Assembly
- Stephen Lee-Urban: Miconic-STRIPS
- Chad Hogg: Fridge
