We are pleased to announce the following
invited talks for the 7th Int'l Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics, Jan. 2-4, 2002 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
- Tom Dean: Searching in the Space of Very Large Structured Models
We consider a variety of problems from automated planning, hardware
verification and stochastic sequential decision making and attempt to
identify sources of structure in these problems that render some of
them tractable. In the process, we consider lessons learned in one
community that are, not surprisingly, relearned in other
communities. We then consider the power of randomization in obtaining
approximations to those problems for which some notion of approximate
solution makes sense. Finally, we revisit some of the basic
assumptions concerning the formulation and quantification of such
- Sarit Kraus: Real-time cooperation: Adversarial domains vs. cooperative domains
- György Turan: On theory revision
The objective of theory revision is to fix
a given roughly correct theory.
We formulate this problem in the computational
learning theory framework of learning with
queries, and present some revision
algorithms and negative results.
This is joint work with Judy Goldsmith,
Bob Sloan and Balazs Szorenyi.
