Machine Learning Methods for Planning provides information pertinent to learning methods for planning and scheduling. This book covers a wide variety of learning methods and learning architectures, including analogical, case-based, decision-tree, explanation-based, and reinforcement learning. Organized into 15 chapters, this book begins with an overview of planning and scheduling and describes some representative learning systems that have been developed for these tasks. This text then describes a learning apprentice for calendar management. Other chapters consider the problem of temporal credit assignment and describe tractable classes of problems for which optimal plans can be derived. This book discusses as well how reactive, integrated systems give rise to new requirements and opportunities for machine learning. The final chapter deals with a method for learning problem decompositions, which is based on an idealized model of efficiency for problem-reduction search. This book is a valuable resource for production managers, planners, scientists, and research workers.

The Intelligent Techniques for Planning presents a number of modern approaches to the area of automated planning. These approaches combine methods from classical planning such as the construction of graphs and the use of domain-independent heuristics with techniques from other areas of artificial intelligence. This book discuses, in detail, a number of state-of-the-art planning systems that utilize constraint satisfaction techniques in order to deal with time and resources, machine learning in order to utilize experience drawn from past runs, methods from knowledge systems for more expressive representation of knowledge and ideas from other areas such as Intelligent Agents. Apart from the thorough analysis and implementation details, each chapter of the book also provides extensive background information about its subject and presents and comments on similar approaches done in the past.

The ?eld of bioinformatics has two main objectives: the creation and main- nance of biological databases, and the discovery of knowledge from life sciences datainordertounravelthemysteriesofbiologicalfunction,leadingtonewdrugs andtherapiesforhumandisease. Life sciencesdatacomeinthe formofbiological sequences, structures, pathways, or literature. One major aspect of discovering biological knowledge is to search, predict, or model speci?c information in a given dataset in order to generate new interesting knowledge. Computer science methods such as evolutionary computation, machine learning, and data mining all have a great deal to o?er the ?eld of bioinformatics. The goal of the 8th - ropean Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning, and Data Mining in Bioinformatics (EvoBIO 2010) was to bring together experts in these ?elds in order to discuss new and novel methods for tackling complex biological problems. The 8th EvoBIO conference was held in Istanbul, Turkey during April 7–9, 2010attheIstanbulTechnicalUniversity. EvoBIO2010washeldjointlywiththe 13th European Conference on Genetic Programming (EuroGP 2010), the 10th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Opti- sation (EvoCOP 2010), and the conference on the applications of evolutionary computation,EvoApplications. Collectively,the conferences areorganizedunder the name Evo* (www. evostar. org). EvoBIO, held annually as a workshop since 2003, became a conference in 2007 and it is now the premiere European event for those interested in the interface between evolutionary computation, machine learning, data mining, bioinformatics, and computational biology.

Recent Advances in Reinforcement Learning addresses current research in an exciting area that is gaining a great deal of popularity in the Artificial Intelligence and Neural Network communities. Reinforcement learning has become a primary paradigm of machine learning. It applies to problems in which an agent (such as a robot, a process controller, or an information-retrieval engine) has to learn how to behave given only information about the success of its current actions. This book is a collection of important papers that address topics including the theoretical foundations of dynamic programming approaches, the role of prior knowledge, and methods for improving performance of reinforcement-learning techniques. These papers build on previous work and will form an important resource for students and researchers in the area. Recent Advances in Reinforcement Learning is an edited volume of peer-reviewed original research comprising twelve invited contributions by leading researchers. This research work has also been published as a special issue of Machine Learning (Volume 22, Numbers 1, 2 and 3).

Planning is the model-based approach to autonomous behavior where the agent behavior is derived automatically from a model of the actions, sensors, and goals. The main challenges in planning are computational as all models, whether featuring uncertainty and feedback or not, are intractable in the worst case when represented in compact form. In this book, we look at a variety of models used in AI planning, and at the methods that have been developed for solving them. The goal is to provide a modern and coherent view of planning that is precise, concise, and mostly self-contained, without being shallow. For this, we make no attempt at covering the whole variety of planning approaches, ideas, and applications, and focus on the essentials. The target audience of the book are students and researchers interested in autonomous behavior and planning from an AI, engineering, or cognitive science perspective. Table of Contents: Preface / Planning and Autonomous Behavior / Classical Planning: Full Information and Deterministic Actions / Classical Planning: Variations and Extensions / Beyond Classical Planning: Transformations / Planning with Sensing: Logical Models / MDP Planning: Stochastic Actions and Full Feedback / POMDP Planning: Stochastic Actions and Partial Feedback / Discussion / Bibliography / Author's Biography

Learning and planning are two important topics of artificial intelligence. Learning deals with the algorithmic processes that make a computing machine able to ?learn? and improve its performance during the process of complex tasks. Planning on the other hand, deals with decision and construction processes that make a machine capable of constructing an intelligent plan for the solution of a particular complex problem.This book combines both learning and planning methodologies and their applications in different domains. It is divided into two parts. The first part contains seven chapters on the ongoing research work in symbolic and connectionist learning. The second part includes seven chapters which provide the current research efforts in planning methodologies and their application to robotics.

One of the most important functions of artificial intelligence, automated problem solving, consists mainly of the development of software systems designed to find solutions to problems. These systems utilize a search space and algorithms in order to reach a solution. Artificial Intelligence for Advanced Problem Solving Techniques offers scholars and practitioners cutting-edge research on algorithms and techniques such as search, domain independent heuristics, scheduling, constraint satisfaction, optimization, configuration, and planning, and highlights the relationship between the search categories and the various ways a specific application can be modeled and solved using advanced problem solving techniques.
