One or two pages explaining the project with a list of references. • May 9: Final report (10 to 15 pages). Final Project • In all cases, the work should be written up as a 10-15 page paper. More difficult projects will get better grades if sucessfully completed. You will be evaluated in terms of the care with which you set up and thought through the goals and implementation, and in terms of the competence of the execution. Regardless of form the write up must include a survey of related literature results. This survey counts for 30% of your project grade and should show your ability to independently find, read, understand, and summarize papers in the primary literature related to your project topic. Autonomous Agents • Artificial, Deterministic world – Agents can be programmed to reason and interact in a known environment • Real, stochastic, partially observed world – Environmental dynamics and consequences of actions...
