First-Order Open-Universe POMDPs

  title={First-Order Open-Universe POMDPs},
  author={Siddharth Srivastava and Stuart J. Russell and Paul Ruan and Xiang Cheng},
Open-universe probability models, representable by a variety of probabilistic programming languages (PPLs), handle uncertainty over the existence and identity of objects—forms of uncertainty occurring in many real-world situations. We examine the problem of extending a declarative PPL to define decision problems (specifically, POMDPs) and identify non-trivial representational issues in describing an agent’s capability for observation and action—issues that were avoided in previous work only by… CONTINUE READING
