In Defense of Reaction Plans as Caches

  • Marcel J. Schoppers

Abstract

Universal plans address the tension between reasoned behavior and timely response by caching reactions for classes of possible situations. This technique reduces the average time required to select a response at the expense of the space required to store the cache-the classic time-space trade-off. In his article, Matthew Ginsberg argues from the time extreme and against the space extreme. Although I find both extremes undesirable, I defend an increase in space consumption.
