Join us for Jordan Thayer's insightful AI talk!
Heuristic search is an AI technique for general problem solving. Said another way, heuristic search allows us to decouple the problem solving strategy from the problems being solved. Applications are varied and range from solving puzzles to industrial applications including very large scale integration and job-shop scheduling. In this talk, we’ll look at a particular heuristic search strategy, depth first search, and two domains: the travelling salesman and scheduling. We’ll go over the text-book definition of depth first search, and then look at some enhancements that are critical for scaling the algorithm up to very large problems.
As always, we'll start with pizza and socializing (Social Pizza™) at 5:30pm and some short intro stuff around 6.
