I’ve compiled all the marks for quizzes and assignments for Fall 2006 of CSC-422.
Kindly mail me if you have a problem with anything. (I’m sure there’ll be many.)
I simply can’t find a blog posting software good enough to be used with wordpress. WordPress’ dashboard itself is just not fast enough – especially on my 56k dialup. Let’s see if this post (using Windows Live Writer) turns out to be ok.
I’ve recently started working on Intelligent Agents. I chose to work with Java because I’m more confortable with object oriented approaches and there’s more AI literature based on Java than any other language.
As a beginning, I chose an exercise in AIMA and implemented it in Java. The framework of the Agent and its Environment is based on Ravi Mohan’s code. (I did have to make a few minor changes to make it work for me.)
The agent works in a dynamic environment and is not given full information regarding the environment. It has to keep track of known hurdles and update them based on the percepts passed to it as it moves around. It uses A* search strategy for calculating the path.
The architecture is capable of accomodating more than one agent but as of now, the environment has only one agent.
