- Lecture - dr. Gerhard WICKLER - Planning Domain Analysis for Knowledge Engineering
In this talk I will describe some features that can be used to understand planning domains defined in a STRIPS-like formalism. The aim of this analysis is to develop a better understanding of what is going on in a domain, possibly similar to the way humans would think about problems defined in such a domain. The primary use for such information is to aid knowledge engineering; the features can be automatically extracted from a given domain and compared to those specified by the domain author, if available.
- Lecture - dr. Lukáš Chrpa - Reformulating Planning Problems
Despite a significant progress in developing AI planning techniques many planning problems remain hard and challenging. Current planning engines although often using informative heuristics are still vulnerable to certain peculiarities in planning domains and problems. Learning and exploiting characteristic knowledge which can be identified in many planning domains and/or classes of planning problems seems to be a very promising way how to improve the planning process. Reformulating planning domains and/or problems is a reasonable way of encoding such knowledge directly into domain and problem descriptions because such an approach is independent on used planning engines. Macro-operators that encapsulate sequences of original planning operators are well known type of knowledge which provides 'shortcuts' in the search space. Another type of knowledge, entanglements that are relations between planning operators and predicates, is used to prune unpromising alternatives in the search space.
- SmartArt 2013
- The SmartArt conference wants in particular to investigate and discuss how Artificial Intelligence techniques and methodologies can contribute to smart grids development, looking into novel opportunities, challenges and open issues for AI in the context of the smart grids. The goal is to provide a forum for proposing innovative and open models, applications and scenarios, as well as new frameworks and methodologies for moving towards this envisioned future. While the field of Artificial Intelligence has a lot to contribute to this emerging field, new challenges and issues have yet to be defined and explored.

- Tokyo is a city of transitions in three short films. A young woman who finds her life useless experiences a metamorphosis. A disheveled Caucasian emerges from a manhole to face arrest, trial, and execution; he calls himself "Merde" and speaks a language only his look-alike attorney understands. Is he human? A recluse experiences human contact when a pizza-delivery girl faints at his door during an earthquake. He conquers fear to seek her out. A chair, a corpse, a hermit: sources of urban connection?
- POSTER 2014
- On May 15, 2014, 18th International Student Scientific Conference Poster 2014 is held at Faculty of Electrical Engineering. Both Doctoral and Master students can present results of their work. More information on www.cvut.cz/poster2014
- 26th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology (SPPT)
- The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology (SPPT) has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 26th Symposium. It was originally founded for the presentation of results of the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (IPP CAS) in 1967. Since 1969 it has gradually become a Czechoslovak forum in this branch and many famous foreign scientists have made presentations. Since 1993 it has been held in co-operation with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU) in Prague.
The symposium is of the European importance. There will be about 150-200 participants.
