CSCI 5582 Artificial Intelligence Lecture 5 Jim Martin CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Today 9/12 Review informed searches Start on local, iterative
improvement search CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Review How is the agenda ordered in the following searches?
Uniform Cost Best First A* IDA* CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Review: A* search
Idea: avoid expanding paths that are already expensive Evaluation function f(n) = g(n) + h(n) g(n) = cost so far to reach n h(n) = estimated cost from n to goal f(n) = estimated total cost of path through n to goal CSCI 5582 Fall 2006

CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Optimization Sometimes referred to as iterative improvement or local search. Well talk about three simple but effective techniques: Hillclimbing Random Restart Hillclimbing
Simulated Annealing CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Optimization Framework Working with 1 state in memory No agenda/queue/fringe Usually Usually generating new states from this 1 state in an attempt to improve things
Goal notion is slightly different Normally solutions are easy to find We can compare solutions and say one is better than another Goal is usually an optimization of some function of the solution (cost). CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Numerical Optimization Were not going to consider numerical
optimization approaches The approaches were considering here dont have well-defined objective functions that can be used to do traditional optimization. But the techniques used are related CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Hill-climbing Search Generate nearby successor states
to the current state based on some knowledge of the problem. Pick the best of the bunch and replace the current state with that one. Loop (until?) CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Hill-Climbing Search function HILL-CLIMBING(problem) return a state that is a local
maximum input: problem, a problem local variables: current, a node. neighbor, a node. current MAKE-NODE(INITIAL-STATE[problem]) loop do neighbor a highest valued successor of current if VALUE [neighbor] VALUE[current] then return STATE[current] current neighbor
CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Hill-climbing Implicit in this scheme is the notion of a neighborhood that in some way preserves the cost behavior of the solution space Think about the TSP problem again If I have a current tour what would a
neighboring tour look like? This is a way of asking for a successor function. CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Hill-climbing Search The successor function is where the intelligence lies in hill-climbing search It has to be conservative enough to preserve significant good portions
of the current solution And liberal enough to allow the state space to be preserved without degenerating into a random walk CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Hill-climbing search Problem: depending on initial state, can get stuck in various ways

attention to Ill post some past quizzes soon (remind me by email) CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Local Maxima (Minima) Hill-climbing is subject to getting stuck in a variety of local
conditions Two solutions Random restart hill-climbing Simulated annealing CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Random Restart Hillclimbing Pretty obvious what this is.
Generate a random start state Run hill-climbing and store answer Iterate, keeping the current best answer as you go Stopping when? Give me an optimality proof for it. CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Annealing
Based on a metallurgical metaphor Start with a temperature set very high and slowly reduce it. Run hillclimbing with the twist that you can occasionally replace the current state with a worse state based on the current temperature and how much worse the new state is. CSCI 5582 Fall 2006
Annealing More formally Generate a new neighbor from current state. If its better take it. If its worse then take it with some probability proportional to the temperature and the delta between the new and old states. CSCI 5582 Fall 2006
Simulated annealing function SIMULATED-ANNEALING( problem, schedule) return a solution state input: problem, a problem schedule, a mapping from time to temperature local variables: current, a node. next, a node. T, a temperature controlling the probability of downward steps current MAKE-NODE(INITIAL-STATE[problem]) for t 1 to do
T schedule[t] if T = 0 then return current next a randomly selected successor of current E VALUE[next] - VALUE[current] if E > 0 then current next else current next only with probability eE /T CSCI 5582 Fall 2006 Properties of simulated
annealing search One can prove: If T decreases slowly enough, then simulated annealing search will find a global optimum with probability approaching 1 Widely used in VLSI layout, airline scheduling, etc
