Abstract : The goal of the project has been to investigate strategies that enable intelligent, real time problem solving systems (IRTPS) to control their reasoning resources in dynamic, unpredictable environments. Our efforts have been focused in four key areas: (1) analyzing the requirements that must be met by simulation systems to support the analysis of reasoning control strategies, and developing simulators that meet those requirements; (2) developing and analyzing strategies for controlling deliberation (reasoning about alternatives) in dynamic environments; (3) developing and analyzing strategies for controlling planning (means-end reasoning) in dynamic environments; and (4) developing and analyzing strategies for controlling interactions in multiagent dynamic environments. This report is organized around these four topics: after a brief overview of the research problem, there is a section devoted to our research results on each topic. This is followed by list of project-sponsored papers and a summary of students supported by this project. Copies of project-supported papers are included as an appendix.
