Problem-solving agentsRestricted form of general agentNote: this is offline problem solving. Online problem solving involves acting without complete knowledge of the problem and solution.function Simple-Problem-Solving-Agent( percept) returns an action static: seq, an action sequence, initially empty

state, some description of the current world state goal, a goal, initially null problem, a problem formulation

state Update-State(state,percept) if seq is empty thengoal Formulate-Goal(state) problem Formulate-Problem(state, goal) seq Search( problem) action Recommendation(seq, state) seq Remainder(seq, state) return action

Example: Romania

On holiday in Romaniacurrently in AradFlight leaves tomorrow from Bucharest

Formulate goal: be in Bucharest

Formulate problem:states: various citiesoperators: drive between cities

Find solution: sequence of cities, e.g., Arad, Sibiu, Fagaras, Bucharest

Problem typesDeterministic, fully observable => single-state problem

Agent knows exactly which state it will be in; solution is a sequence

Non-observable => conformant (sensorless) problemAgent may have no idea where it is; solution (if any) is a sequence

Nondeterministic and/or partially observable=> contingency problem

Percepts provide new information about current statesolution is a tree or policyoften interleave search, execution

Unknown state space => exploration problem (online)

Example: vacuum worldSingle-state, start in #5

Solution??Conformant, start in {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8}

e.g., Right goes to {2, 4, 6, 8}.Solution??

Contingency, start in #5Murphy's Law: Suck can dirty a clean carpetLocal sensing: dirt, location only.Solution??

Single-state problem formulationA problem is defined by four items:

, ,}

goal testexplicit, e.g., x = at Bucharestimplicit, e.g., NoDirt(x)

path cost (additive)sum of distances, number of operators executed, or others

A solution is a sequence of actions leading from the initial state to a goal state

Selecting a state space Real world is absurdly complex

State space must be abstracted for problem solving(Abstract) state = set of real states(Abstract) action = complex combination of real actions

Arad Zerind represents a complex set of possible routes, detours, rest stops, and other states.

For guaranteed realizability, any real state in Arad must get to some real state in Zerind(Abstract) solution = set of real paths that are solutions in the real worldEach abstract action should be easier than the original problem!

Tree Search algorithms

Basic idea: offline, simulated exploration of state space by generating successors of already-explored states (a.k.a. expanding states)

AIMA Slides Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig, 1998

function Tree-Search( problem, strategy) returns a solution, or failure initialize the search tree using the initial state of problemloop do

if there are no candidates for expansion then return failure choose a leaf node for expansion according to strategyif the node contains a goal state then return the corresponding solution else expand the node and add the resulting nodes to the search tree

end

Implementation: states vs. nodesA state is a (representation of) a physical configurationA node is a data structure constituting part of a search tree includes parent, children, depth, path cost g(x)States do not have parents, children, depth, or path cost!

AIMA Slides Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig, 1998

The Expand function creates new nodes, filling in the various fields and using the Operators (or SuccessorFn) of the problem to create the corresponding states.

Implementation of general tree search

function Tree-Search( problem, fringe) returns a solution or failurefringe Insert(Make-Node(Initial-State[problem]), fringe) loop do

if fringe is empty then return failure node Remove-Front(fringe ) if Goal-Test[problem] applied to State(node) succeeds

then return node fringe InsertAll (Expand(node, problem), fringe)

function Expand(node, problem) returns a set of nodessuccessors the empty setfor each action, result in Successor-Fn [problem](State[node]) do

s a new NodeParent-Node [s] node; Action[s] action; State[s] resultPath-Cost[s] Path-Cost[node] + Step-Cost(node, action, s)Depth[s] Depth[node] + 1add s to successors

Search strategiesA strategy is defined by picking the order of node expansionStrategies are evaluated along the following dimensions

completeness does it always find a solution if one exists?time complexity number of nodes generated/expandedspace complexity maximum number of nodes in memoryoptimality does it always find a least-cost solution?

Time and space complexity are measured in terms ofb maximum branching factor of the search treed depth of the least-cost solutionm maximum depth of the state space (may be )

fringe is a FIFO queue, I.e. new successors go at end

Properties of breadth-first searchComplete?? Yes (if b is finite)Time?? 1 + b + b2 + b3 + + bd = O(bd ), i.e., exponential in dSpace?? O(bd ) (keeps every node in memory)Optimal?? Yes (if cost = 1 per step), not optimal in general Space is the big problem, can easily generate nodes at 10MB/sec so 24hrs = 860GB.

Properties of depth-first searchComplete??

No: fails in infinite-depth spaces, spaces with loopsModify to avoid repeated states along path complete in finite spaces

Time?? O(bm ): terrible if m (maximum depth of the state space) is much larger than d, (depth of the least-cost solution)but if solutions are dense, may be much faster than breadth-first

Space?? O(bm), i.e., linear space!Optimal?? No
