In automated planning current research is focused\ud on developing domain-independent planning engines.\ud These require domain models, written in a standard\ud input language such as PDDL to supply knowledge of\ud the planning application and task, before they can be\ud used. The main component of a domain model is the\ud representation of actions in the form of lifted opera-\ud tor schema. The acquisition and engineering of these\ud schema is an important area of research, as this process\ud is recognised as being di�cult and laborious even for\ud planning experts.\ud A fruitful line of research is to investigate mechanisms\ud to automatically learn planning domain models. Re-\ud cent research has studied learning from structured or\ud re�ned inputs supplied by a training agent (Cress-\ud well, McCluskey, and West 2011; Zhuo et al. 2010;\ud Wu, Yang, and Jiang 2005; McCluskey et al. 2010). An\ud alternative method would be to allow planning agents\ud to learn and develop the domain models by observa-\ud tion. One freely available source for learning actions\ud is selected web text; here actions are represented as\ud verbs in natural language. This project aims to in-\ud vestigate the possibility of extracting formal structures\ud representing actions from free text. We intend to utilise\ud large text corpuses available on-line from which to ex-\ud tract such action knowledge, and learn operator schema\ud in a formal language that can be converted to PDDL.
