Find Out Why Reading This Paper is anOpportunity of Type Opp0
2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Under what conditions should a cognitive robot act? How do we define “opportunities” for robot action? How can we characterize their properties? This paper offers an apparatus to frame thediscussion. Starting from a simple introductory example, we specifyan initial version of a formal framework of opportunity which relates current and future states and beneficial courses of action in a certain time horizon. An opportunity reasoning algorithm is presented,which opens up various new questions about the different types of opportunity and how to interleave opportunity reasoning and action execution. An implementation of this algorithm is tested in a simple experiment including a real mobile robot in a smart home environment and a user.
