Workshop on Reliable Data-Driven Planning and Scheduling

Daniel Höller, Jörg Hoffmann, Marcel Steinmetz and our chief coordinator Sylvie Thiebaux are in the organizing committee of the upcoming third Workshop on Reliable Data-Driven Planning and Scheduling (RDDPS) that is being held within The International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS) the premier forum for researchers and practitioners in planning and scheduling.

Data-driven AI is the dominating trend in AI at this time. From a planning and scheduling perspective – and for sequential decision making in general – this is manifested in two major kinds of technical artifacts that are rapidly gaining importance.
The first are planning models that are (partially) learned from data (e.g., a weather forecast in a model of flight actions).
The second are action-decision components learned from data, in particular, action policies or planning-control knowledge for making decisions in dynamic environments (e.g., manufacturing processes under resource-availability and job-length fluctuations).

Given the nature of such data-driven artifacts, reliability is a key concern, prominently including safety, robustness, and fairness in various forms, but possibly other concerns as well. Arguably, this is one of the grand challenges in AI for the foreseeable future.
