The roadmap document is the result of workshops and consultations between
researchers in the knowledge engineering technical coordination unit of PLANET. It is
aimed at researchers who would like to pursue research problems
in this important area, and as a guide to those about to engage in a knowledge-based
planning project. It assumes
that the reader is already aware of AI planning research.
We are planning the roadmap so that it begins
with a taxonomy of knowledge engineering issues,
then postulates a general and
formally-biased `rich picture' for the role of knowledge engineering in AI planning.
It will examine specific issues and topics (such as the role of machine learning) that
one might want to consider if engaged in engineering a planning domain model. Next it
will deal with languages for encoding planning domain models, their requirements and form and
content. Finally, it will describe the specific role of knowledge engineering in each of the
applied PLANET TCU areas.
