Teaching Sommersemester 2013
In this seminar we will study several different approaches to and aspects of plan and activity recognition. Recognizing what other agents are doing is an important aspect of intelligent systems. For example, a domestic service robot needs to understand what the human is doing in order to interact with him in a reasonable way. And a self-driving car should know what the other traffic participants are doing right now and infer what they are going to do in the next moments. Different domains bring along different problems and needs for levels of expressiveness like partial observability, incomplete knowledge, non-deterministic actions, adversarial agents, potentially hazardous situations. We will study some of the latest research on these problems and work out the particular strengths and weaknesses.
The topics include recent papers on plan and activity recognition.
The SS 2013 proseminar will be on different (sub-)topics from artificial intelligence. We largely follow the lines of the well known textbook by Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig "Artificial Intelligence - A Modern Approach".
