Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

There are many different approaches to solving planning problems, one of which is the use of domain specific control knowledge to help guide a domain independent search algorithm. This paper presents L2Plan which represents this control knowledge as an ordered set of control rules, called a policy, and learns using genetic programming. The genetic program’s crossover and mutation operators are augmented by a simple local search. L2Plan was tested on both the blocks world and briefcase domains. In both domains, L2Plan was able to produce policies that solved all the test problems and which outperformed the hand-coded policies written by the authors.
