This quantity comprises the court cases of SARA 2000, the fourth Symposium on Abstraction, Reformulations, and Approximation (SARA). The convention used to be held at Horseshoe Bay inn and convention membership, Lake LBJ, Texas, July 26– 29, 2000, simply sooner than the AAAI 2000 convention in Austin. prior SARA meetings happened at Jackson gap in Wyoming (1994), Ville d’Est´erel in Qu´ebec (1995), and Asilomar in California (1998). The symposium grewout of a chain of workshops on abstraction, approximation, and reformulation that had taken position along AAAI because 1989. This year’s symposium was once really scheduled to ensue at Lago Vista golf equipment & lodge on Lake Travis yet, as a result of the resort’s failure to pay taxes, the convention needed to be moved overdue within the day. This mischance engendered eleventh-hour reformulations, abstractions, and source re-allocations of its personal. Such are the perils of organizing a convention. this can be the ?rst SARA for which the complaints were released within the LNAI sequence of Springer-Verlag. we are hoping that this can be a re?ection of the elevated adulthood of the ?eld and that the elevated visibility introduced via the e-book of this quantity may help the self-discipline develop even extra. Abstractions, reformulations, and approximations (AR&A) have discovered - plications in numerous disciplines and difficulties together with automated progr- ming, constraint delight, layout, analysis, computing device studying, making plans, qu- itative reasoning, scheduling, source allocation, and theorem proving. The - pers during this quantity seize a cross-section of those program domains.

Example text

This paper has focused on exploiting programmer-specified hierarchical structure. The biggest open problem in hierarchical reinforcement learning is to discover hierarchical structure. One definition of a good hierarchy is that it would permit the three forms of state abstraction that we have discussed in this paper. We hope that the formalization of these abstractions (and others yet to be identified) will help guide the search for good abstractions. Bibliography Bertsekas, D. , & Tsitsiklis, J. N.
