    Abstract

    The authors describe Phoenix from the perspective of their technical aims and motives. They describe the Phoenix task - controlling simulated forest fires - and explain why they use a simulated environment instead of a real, physical one. They discuss the characteristics of the forest fire environment and the constraints they place on the design of agents. They illustrate Phoenix agents controlling a forest fire.
