Abstract:

The Mixed Initiative courses of action COA Critic Advisor MICCA research effort developed an agent-based proof of concept prototype for evaluation and alignment of externally generated or historical plans andor COAs with the current world state. MICCA was used to support the evaluation and adaptation of plans from two domains, the Rovers domain from the Third International Planning Competition and the DARPA Joint AirGround Operations Unified Adaptive Replanning JAGUAR Air Tasking Order domain that supports dynamic tactical air mission planning and execution. MICCA software agents operate in a domain independent manner, and communicate via a blackboard framework. Domain dependent information is utilized to support some of their reasoning. Additional work included the development of translation tools to support the interpretation of domain specific input, the development of a variety of user interface capabilities to facilitate mixed-initiative decision making, and the combination of generative and case based planning approaches to support both evaluation and adaptation of plans.
