The presentation will motivate the challenges of Integrative AI and illustrate them on a very active research issue in the AI&Robotics community, which is the integration of motion and task planning. The basic techniques and representations for the two separate problems of task planning and motion planning will be briefly introduced, as well as the practical need for their integration. The main integrative approaches currently being explored will be surveyed.
