Abstract [en]

Most of today’s autonomous problem solving agents perform their task with the help of problem domain specifications that keep their abstractions fixed. Those abstractions are often selected by human users. We think that the approach with fixed-abstraction domain specifications is very inflexible because it does not allow the agent to focus its limited computational resources on what may be most relevant at the moment. We would like to build agents that dynamically find suitable abstractions depending on relevance for their current task and situation. This idea of dynamic abstraction has recently been considered an important research problem within the area of hierarchical reinforcement learning [1].
