Another example of ambiguity/carelessness is remark on include goal in list of expanded nodes in homework 1 questions. In algorithms in the text books the node containing goal state is never expanded.<br /><br />Another frustrating issue is use of vaguely terms "left" and "right" when talking about graph. The example is:<br /><br /><br /> B<br /> /<br />A<br /> \<br /> C<br /><br />From perspective of node "A" which is left "B" or "C"?!<br /><br />I am disappointed by the quality of homework questions so far.vzalivahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14778944245396855145noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5207686514768539188.post-76251736369891025362011-10-13T06:15:38.917-07:002011-10-13T06:15:38.917-07:00in my case I view the maze as a graph, as in the e...in my case I view the maze as a graph, as in the example of Romania, then each step an agent makes a decision, it basically solves the problem using the portion of the graph it sees, therefore the states will be discrete. You opened my mind with the robot moving along, which of course makes more sense form a real life perspective. Now I am unsure about the correct answer.Césarhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10440257340702843114noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5207686514768539188.post-69867123908242262372011-10-13T01:27:15.286-07:002011-10-13T01:27:15.286-07:00Yes it is confusing indeed.

I only disagree in the coin problem, becouse the task is to find a probabilistic model, so like a markov chain to predict the most probable next value of the tossLeandrohttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01216775993964391428noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5207686514768539188.post-11828631989246965712011-10-12T15:53:10.621-07:002011-10-12T15:53:10.621-07:00I agree that the homework is fuzzy.

If the final tests are as fuzzily constructed, the scores for the students are effectively scores relating the student's ability to guess the context the instructor had in mind... not about the material itself.<br /><br />Still, I'm finding the book and the course useful, even if I think that the post about the questions being Zen Koans in the forum very appropriate.Godekehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02058768951200556914noreply@blogger.com
