Becoming Increasingly Reactive

  title={Becoming Increasingly Reactive},
  author={Tom M. Mitchell},
We describe a robot control architecture which combines a stimulus-response subsystem for rapid reaction, with a search-based planner for handling unanticipated situations. The robot agent continually chooses which action it is to perform, using the stimulusresponse subsystem when possible, and falling back on the planning subsystem when necessary. Whenever it is forced to plan, it applies an explanation-based learning mechanism to formulate a new stimulus-response rule to cover this new… CONTINUE READING
