Collaborative Learning for Constraint Solving

  title={Collaborative Learning for Constraint Solving},
  author={Susan L. Epstein and Eugene C. Freuder},
Although constraint programming offers a wealth of strong, general-purpose methods, in practice a complex, real application demands a person who selects, combines, and refines various available techniques for constraint satisfaction and optimization. Although such tuning produces eff icient code, the scarcity of human experts slows commercialization. The necessary expertise is of two forms: constraint programming expertise and problem-domain expertise. The former is in short supply, and even… CONTINUE READING
