− | This is where we need to start. Please put your ideas here for how to structure the contents of this toolkit/wiki-page(s). I've ripped and wiki-fied the table of contents of the main sections of Russell and Norvig's classic "Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach", for inspiration. One way of structuring things would be to turn various section names of this into links to new pages. If we do this, we should agree on the format for each new page to link to: e.g., each page could have a list of papers, links to code, a general discussion area, and a list of benchmark problems for that particular topic.

* In short, parts of this project can range from established ideas to new syntheses. ccshan: The high level of domain-specific abstraction that Haskell enables is ideal for AI, because AI programs are often "meta": we need to model agents who model the world, and sometimes to model agents who model agents who model the world, etc. In particular, monads are a good way to structure and solve decision processes, [http://conway.rutgers.edu/~ccshan/wiki/cs504/posts/Second_week.html as I've started to explore as part of a course on computational modeling that I'm teaching]. Given that [http://www.cs.yale.edu/homes/hudak-paul/hudak-dir/ACM-WS/position.html Haskell is a good language for modular interpreters and compilers], it would also be nice to create and refactor in Haskell an implementation of a [http://ai.stanford.edu/~shoham/www%20papers/RatProg.pdf rational programming language] like [http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~avi/ Avi Pfeffer]'s [http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~avi/IBAL/index.html IBAL] -- not only [http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~nr/pubs/pmonad-abstract.html is probability distribution a monad], I just realized that [http://ttic.uchicago.edu/~dmcallester/bayes.ps a certain kind of variable elimination] is simply garbage collection in a call-by-need language! |

## 3 Ideas

- In short, parts of this project can range from established ideas to new syntheses. ccshan: The high level of domain-specific abstraction that Haskell enables is ideal for AI, because AI programs are often "meta": we need to model agents who model the world, and sometimes to model agents who model agents who model the world, etc. In particular, monads are a good way to structure and solve decision processes, as I've started to explore as part of a course on computational modeling that I'm teaching. Given that Haskell is a good language for modular interpreters and compilers, it would also be nice to create and refactor in Haskell an implementation of a rational programming language like Avi Pfeffer's IBAL -- not only is probability distribution a monad, I just realized that a certain kind of variable elimination is simply garbage collection in a call-by-need language!

## 4 Things that need a home

If there are things that should be included in the project, but you're not sure where it should go, place it here! I'll start with:

- http://catenova.org/~awagner/Simplifier
- This was given to me by Alfonso Acosta (mentioned recently on haskell-cafe)

- http://catenova.org/~awagner/GPLib
- GPLib is a work in progress by yours truly, hopefully a future framework for genetic algorithms in haskell.

I've proposed a machine learning library for this year's Google Summer of Code. [1] There has been a few interested (and seemingly well qualified) students, too. I'm not sure if it qualifes as "AI", but if you are interested in this project (as a potential student, mentor, or just...well, interested), please add yourself to the above link, and/or get in touch with me at <ketil at malde dot org>. --Ketil 07:46, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Martin Erwig's probabilistic functional programming (PFP) project, including an implementation of the probability monad:

Two links I found today that are interesting:

Polytypic unification - unification seems particularly useful for AI tasks (at least natural language stuff)... wouldn't be nice to have a generic library that does it for you?

## 5 Proposed Module Hierarchy

- AI
- AI.Searching
- AI.Searching.Evolutionary

- AI.Logic
- AI.Planning
- AI.Planning.Swarm

- AI.Probabilistic
- AI.Learning
- AI.Learning.Kernel
- AI.Learning.NeuralNet

- AI.Classification
- AI.Classification.ExpertSystem

- AI.Communication

- AI.Searching

## 6 Proposed sample format for a wiki page on a topic or sub-topic

**AI/Logic/Fuzzy**

The slashes show that Logic is a subpage of **AI** and Fuzzy is a subpage of AI/Logic. MediaWiki will then generate links back up the chain of pages. (Try the links to see)

- Fuzzy logic is blah blah...
- Sub-topics:
- Trivial fuzzy logic in Haskell
- Type 2 fuzzy logic

- Links to existing literature:
- General
- My first fuzzy logic book

- Specific to functional programming / Haskell
- Fun with fuzzy functions

- General
- Typical problems:
- Problem 1: blah blah blah
- Problem 2: blah blah blah

- List of people involved in the area
- Me
- Someone else

- Body
- List of goals
- Progress being made on them
- Code and documentation.
