Beam Search

Categories: Search

Author(s): Helen Lowe

This is a search method in which heuristics are used to prune the Search Space to a small number of nearly optimal alternatives. This set comprises the `beam', and its members are then searched in parallel. Applications include speech recognition, vision, constraint directed search, and learning.
