When Abstractions Met Landmarks

When Abstractions Met Landmarks

This video was recorded at 20th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling. Abstractions and landmarks are two powerful mechanisms for devising admissible heuristics for classical planning. Here we aim at putting them together by integrating landmark information into abstractions, and propose a concrete realization of this direction suitable for structural-pattern abstractions, as well as for other abstraction heuristics. Our empirical evaluation shows that landmark information can substantially improve the quality of abstraction heuristic estimates.
