Automated Scheduling for Rosetta Science Operations

Talk: Automated Scheduling for Rosetta Science Operations

In my talk I first briefly discuss comets and their importance understanding the evolution of our solar system and life on Earth. Second, I describe elements of the multi- disciplinary Rosetta science planning process which incorporates diverse science, geometric, engineering, and resource constraints. Finally, I describe the constraint-driven scheduling automation and how Artificial Intelligence has much to offer not only in schedule generation, but in constraint enforcement, problem and constraint analysis, and in iterative schedule refinement.
