The Prodigy User Interface

Keywords: Prodigy user interface, planning
domain, analogical reasoning, probabilistic planning
The Prodigy user interface supports the process of both building
and running a planning domain in Prodigy. It was designed to be highly
modular, requiring no changes to the code of the Prodigy planner to run,
and extensible, so that interfaces to other modules built on Prodigy
could easily be intergrated into the interface. In this paper we describe
how these goals were achieved. We demonstrate building a domain and
animating the planning process. We describe extensions to the user
interface to support planning by analogical reasoning and probabilistic
planning with Prodigy.
