Disaster rescue is one of the most serious social issue which involves very large numbers of heterogeneous agents in the hostile environment. RoboCup-Rescue intends to promote research and development in this socially significant domain by creating a standard simulator and forum for researchers and practitioners. While the rescue domain intuitively appealing as large scale multi-agent domains, it has not yet given through analysis on its domain characteristics. In this paper, we present… Expand

TLDR
Once one turns attention to agents that perform autonomously in dynamic, uncertain environments-including multi-agent environments-the assumptions made by traditional planners are violated, and it becomes necessary to rethink the traditional AI approaches to planning. Expand
Hybrid Planning for Partially Hierarchical Domains
TLDR
This paper provides a generalized plan-space refinement that is capable of handling non-primitive actions and provides a principled way of handling partially hierarchical domains, while preserving systematicity, and respecting the user-intent inherent in the reduction schemas. Expand
Towards flexible teamwork in persistent teams
TLDR
This paper presents a decision-theoretic technique to enable persistent teams to overcome limitations of the model-based approach to flexible teamwork, and explains why agents reason about expected team utilities of future team states that are projected to result from actions recommended by the teamwork model.

Rationality and Intelligence
TLDR
A gradual evolution in the formal conception of intelligence is outlined that brings it closer to the authors' informal conception and simultaneously reduces the gap between theory and practice. Expand
