Hillary is a macro learning program developed
by Lev Finkelshtein and
Shaul Markovitch. The system was tried in several
domains. One of the domains tried is the NxN sliding tile puzzle. The system
was able to learn how to solve any NxN puzzle (puzzles up to 50x50 were
tried) after training on small self-generated problems.
The Hillary Demo is a Java problem solver that uses a set of macros already
learned by Hillary to solve puzzles and show the solution graphically.
The Java Program was written by Ofer
Avnery and Eyal Fingold.
Note: The program currently
runs fast under Netscape 4 and Explorer 3. Under Netscape 3 it runs extremely slowly.
