Reactive and Automatic Behavior in Plan Execution

  title={Reactive and Automatic Behavior in Plan Execution},
  author={Pat Langley and Wayne Iba and Jeff Shrager},
Much of the work on execution assumes that the agent constantly senses the environment, which lets it respond immediately" to errors or unexpected events. In this paper, we argue that this purely reactive strategy is only optimal if sensing is inexpensive, and wc formulate a simple model of execution that incorporates the cost of sensing. We present, an average-case analysis of this model, which shows that in domains with high sensing cost or low probability of error, a more ’automatic… CONTINUE READING
