"This book serves to provide a coherent snapshot of the exciting developments in the field enabled by improved sensors, increased computational power, and new application areas." - HPCMagazine.com, August 2014
"Plan recognition, activity recognition, and intent recognition all involve making inferences about other actors from observations of their behavior. These inferences are crucial in a wide range of applications including intelligent assistants, computer security, and dialogue management systems. This volume, edited by leading researchers, provides a timely snapshot of some of the key formulations, techniques, and applications that have been developed in this rich and rapidly evolving field."
–Dr. Hector Geffner, ICREA & Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona
"This book collects some of the top senior people in the field of plan recognition with some of the newest researchers. It offers a comprehensive review of plan recognition from multiple viewpoints, encompassing both logical and probabilistic formalisms and covering mathematical theory, computer science applications, and human cognitive models."
–Dr. Peter Norvig, Director of Research at Google Inc.
"Plan, Activity, and Intent Recognition is an indispensable resource for creating systems that infer peoples’ goals and plans on the basis of their behavior. Researchers in security, natural language dialog systems, smart spaces and pervasive computing, and other areas will find a comprehensive and up to date survey of methods, applications, and open research challenges."
–Dr. Henry Kautz, University of Rochester, Past President of AAAI (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence)
From the Back Cover
Plan, activity, and intent recognition are computational mechanisms for analyzing people’s behavior from an incomplete set of observations. These algorithms combine insights from diverse areas of computer science including user modeling, human-computer interaction, autonomous and multi-agent systems, natural language understanding, machine vision, probabilistic reasoning and machine learning. This book explains the crucial role of these techniques in a wide variety of applications including:
- Personal agent assistants
- Intelligent user interfaces
- Cognitive models
- Opponent modeling in games and simulation systems
- Multi-agent coordination
- Human-robot interfaces
- Smart homes
- Pervasive and wearable sensors
The book follows the history of this research area and presents exciting new developments in the field made possible by improved sensors, increased computational power, and new application areas.
