Improving the Informative

Chapter

Abstract

How does a top chef cook a meal with a unique and savory flavor? How does a traveler plan a trip with the shortest travel time to visit a friend living several hours away? Information, such as a recipe or a map, can be the input to an active process that produces better output than would be obtained without these inputs.
