InGen Project

InGen is a subproject of the CoTeSys Cluster.

The objective of this project is to develop a hierarchical approach to knowledge representation and action planning which enable cognitive systems to compute goal attaining strategies efficiently even in presence of large variations of the environment. In detail, the project aims at:

The hierachical decomposition of complex task into simpler subtasks, which resembles the approach to problem solving used by human brains, will push the complexity of problems that cognitive systems can solve autonomously.

We develop a layered architecture to represent different aspects of the system (adaptation, task planing and control) and make use of formal models on each leyer.
