Abstract

In this paper we discuss a class of tasks in which to study planning under uncertainty. We analyze the interaction between autonomous agents and uncertain environments, and review the artificial intelligence literature on planning from this perspective. Case studies from our own research are presented to illustrate issues in planning under uncertainty and methods for studying these issues.
