Sample text

The blackboard architecture has also been adopted by the computer game AI community for solving decision-making and agent coordination problems (see [18]), although there is some controversy about whether game AI blackboard systems are actually “true” blackboard systems. Blackboard systems (BBSs) have many properties that make them suitable for solving complex problems that require progression through different stages (with many paths to those stages) to reach the final solution [19]. These include problems that can be viewed as a search for the “best” solution given a set of constraints [20].

The article also talks about the creation of subgoals and the use of a hierarchy of goals and subgoals to achieve the original overarching goal. e. speech understanding [44]. Thus, most of the core properties and components of blackboard systems, such as opportunistic problem-solving, different levels of abstraction and KS collaboration, were derived directly from those needs. 2 The First BBS—Hearsay-II This section looks in detail at the system that is widely regarded as the first BBS, Hearsay-II (HSII).

Both of these systems made use of ACCORD as a KS. Collectively, the set of assembly-arrangement BBSs were known BB1 systems. BB1 modified the original HSII control architecture so that additional KSs were used to build the control plan for the system’s behaviour. In BB1’s control architecture, the domain problem and the control problem were both solved using the blackboard model. The architecture used CKSs as in CRYSALIS but also inserted a control blackboard. It implemented an agenda-based approach to solving the control problem as in HSII, but introduced a more complex control planning method where the CKSs incrementally developed control plans on the control blackboard.
