Examples

Plinf.jl can be used to model agents that perform model-based heuristic search to achieve their goals. Below, we visualize a sampled trace for a replanning agent that interleaves resource-bounded plan search with plan execution:

We can then perform goal inference for these agents:

Notice that the correct goal is eventually inferred, despite backtracking by the agent. This is because we model the agent as boundedly rational: it does not always produce optimal plans. Indeed, this modeling assumption also allows us to infer goals from failed plans:

Because we use the Planning Domain Definition Language (PDDL) as our underlying state representation, our architecture supports a large range of domains, including the classic Blocks World:
