The Gourmand Planner


Gourmand is a solver for finite-horizon MDPs with large branching factors, built by Andrey Kolobov, Mausam, and Dan Weld. It is a further development of Glutton, the runner-up in the 2011 International Probabilistic Planning Competition (IPPC-2011) . The main difference between the two is their mode of operation: Gourmand is an online planner, while Glutton is an offline one. Gourmand has been shown to outperform both Glutton and PROST, the IPPC-2011 winner, across the set of all IPPC-2011 benchmarks.
