Abstract : This paper describes a method for improving the comprehensibility, accuracy, and generality of reactive plans. A reactive plan is a set of reactive rules. Our method involves two phases, formulate explanations of execution traces, and generate new reactive rules from the explanations. The explanation phase involves translating the execution trace of a reactive planner into an abstract language, and then using Explanation Based Learning to identify general strategies within the abstract trace. The rule generation phase consists of taking a subset of the explanations and using these explanations to generate a set of new reactive rules to add to the original set for the purpose of performance improvement.
