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.

Goal Recognition concerns the problem of determining an agent's final goal, deduced from the plan they are currently executing (and subsequently being observed). The set of possible goals or plans to be considered are commonly stored in a library, which is then used to propose possible candidate goals for the agent's behaviour. Previously, we presented AUTOGRAPH - a system which removed the need for a goal or plan library, thus making any problem solvable without the need to construct such a structure. In this paper, we discuss IGRAPH, which improves upon its predecessor by utilising Bayesian inference to determine both terminal and intermediate goals/states which the agent being observed is likely to pass through.
