This paper discusses the issues involved in applying a generic AI planner to the problem of generating plant operating procedures for chemical process plant. It considers the problem of providing the correct planning facilities, concentrating on dealing with flow of chemicals, and proposes the use and integration of a special purpose planner for valve(More)
In this paper we describe how we are exploiting AI technologies to infuse workflow systems with adaptive capabilities. This work is part of an ongoing applied research programme between AIAI and a number of industrial and academic partners. We begin by presenting the requirements of adaptive workflow within a taxonomy consisting of the layers of domain,(More)
This paper argues that AI planning is a technology ripe for use on real world problems as shown by a number of current applications. An introduction is given to AI planning, and then followed by a consideration in detail of the successful application of this technology to generating operating procedures for chemical plants. A description is given of the(More)
In this paper, we investigated an approach for robots to learn to adapt dance actions to human’s preferences through interaction and feedback. Human’s preferences were extracted by analysing the common action patterns with positive or negative feedback from the human during robot dancing. By using a buffering technique to store the dance actions before a(More)
The flexibility of current workflow systems needs to be extended to allow them to operate in more dynamic and uncertain environments. Adaptive workflow systems need to be able to provide intelligent support for the planning and enactment of complex processes; supporting their users in performing flexible and creative tasks, while respecting the norms of the(More)
In recent years, many organisations have found enterprise modelling, especially business process modelling, to be an effective tool for managing organisational change. The application of business processing modelling has brought benefits to many organisations, but the models developed tend to be used for reference during business operations and(More)
To achieve more widespread application, workflow systems need to be developed to operate in dynamic environments where they are expected to ensure that users are supported in performing flexible and creative tasks while maintaining organisational norms. We argue that in order to cope with these demands, the systems must be provided with knowledge about the(More)
