Thinking as Computation

Levesque Hector J.

The MIT Press

This chapter focuses on the kind of thinking that involves planning. Section 9.1 discusses two simple but very different planning problems and how the planning process is really the same for both of them. Section 9.2 considers a general planning program in Prolog, and applies it to three planning problems. The final two sections consider how planning changes as the scope gets larger, first in terms of how the thinking should proceed and then in terms of how the knowledge itself should be represented.

Keywords:   Prolog programming, planning problems, thinking
