TRIPS, The Rochester Interactive Planning System, is the latest in a series of prototype collaborative planning assistants developed at the University of Rochester's Department of Computer Science. The goal of the project is an intelligent planning assistant that interacts with its human manager using a combination of natural language and graphical displays (maps, charts, windows, and the like). The system understands the interaction as a dialogue between it and the human. The dialogue provides the context for interpreting human utterances and actions, and provides the structure for deciding what to do in response. With the human in the loop, they and the system together can solve harder problems faster than either could solve alone.

The domains supported by TRIPS include:
