In AI and Logic Ariadne's Thread can refer to the use of organized records such to slve problems with multiple choices. I.E. Keeping a record of what you have done so you don't repeat mistakes and having an plan to get you to your destination.

In AI/Logic there are a few standard problems that are used. E.g. "The Travelling Salesman" problem and exiting a maze are examples of searching problems. Most problems. Most logic problems boil down to searching and/or sorting.
