Learning Portfolios of Automatically Tuned Planners
Keywords:portfolios, parameter tuning, classical planning, heuristic search
Portfolio planners and parameter tuning are two ideas that have recently attracted significant attention in the domain-independent planning community. We combine these two ideas and present a portfolio planner that runs automatically configured planners. We let the automatic parameter tuning framework ParamILS find fast configurations of the Fast Downward planning system for a number of planning domains. Afterwards we learn a portfolio of those planner configurations. Evaluation of our portfolio planner on the IPC 2011 domains shows that it has a significantly higher IPC score than the winner of the sequential satisficing track.
