In general, selecting the organization of an architecture is about problem complexity. Simple problems will manage with monolithic architecture, more sophisticated problems may need flat architectures, whereas hierarchical architectures can handle almost any problem by breaking it down. " This concept of decomposition is central to AI development in general. There are many types of decompositions. The idea is to split the problem according to certain criteria whichever proves the most appropriate for solving it!

Back to movement again, we build on the assumptions we identified by establishing a formal specification of the problem. This provides a set of interfaces with the environment and an empty code skeleton; this is a good base waiting for the right solution to be implemented. " This chapter discusses the importance of specifying the problem. Notably, this relies extensively on the subject of knowledge representation, which we explain in detail. Then, we show how to conduct the specification phase generally.

If the preceding output is used to determine the next value, the same input could also lead to a different output. Both these examples reflect nondeterminism. 2). If we consider the internal state, or the feedback connection, as another input, the mapping is once again reactive! There is no longer any ambiguity when the internal variables that would make the component nondeterministic are instead exposed as inputs. 2. A nondeterministic component can be interpreted as reactive if the internal state values are considered as an input.
