Abstract: Problem Space Analysis allows a planner to find patterns within the characteristics of problem scenarios that may be encountered in the near future. One component of such analysis, the problem-space map (PS Map), groups together problems that a particular solution can resolve. An ideal PS Map allows a system to preemptively plan for future scenarios, but is generally prohibitively expensive to compute. This talk will give an overview of problem space analysis, and describe current and future directions to efficiently approximate a PS Map.
