16.410 Principles of Autonomy and Decision Making
Survey of reasoning, optimization and decision making methodologies for creating highly autonomous systems and decision support aids. Focus on principles, algorithms, and their application, taken from the disciplines of artificial intelligence and operations research. Reasoning paradigms include logic and deduction, heuristic and constraint-based search, model-based reasoning, planning and execution, and machine learning. Optimization paradigms include linear programming, integer programming, and dynamic programming. Decision-making paradigms include decision theoretic planning, and Markov decision processes. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.
