Towards an Empirical Exploration of Design Space.
In Gal A. Kaminka and Catherina R. Burghart (editors) Evaluating Architectures for Intelligence: Papers from the 2007 AAAI Workshop, pages 31 -- 35, AAAI Press. Technical Report WS-07-04.
In this paper we propose an empirical method for the comparison of
architectures designed to produce similar behaviour from an
intelligent system. The approach is based on the exploration of
design space using similar designs that all satisfy the same
requirements in niche space. An example of a possible
application of this method is given using a robotic system that has
been implemented using a software toolkit that has been designed to
support architectural experimentation.
