Fuzzy interpolation-based Q-learning with continuous states and actions
This paper proposes a new method of Q-learning where fuzzy inference is introduced to calculate the Q-function that evaluates the state/action pairs so as to enable us to deal with continuous-valuedExpand

Fuzzy interpolation-based Q-learning with profit sharing plan scheme
We have previously (1996) proposed fuzzy interpolation-based Q-learning where fuzzy rules are used to represent Q-function (action utility function), in order to enable us to treat continuous-valuedExpand

System design based on benefit of inconvenience and emotion
Although the tools of today are developed to be convenient, they do not always satisfy people. Tools sometimes evoke negative feelings in people such that they get tired of using them. InExpand

Analyzing Parameter Sensitivity and Classifier Representations for Real-Valued XCS
TLDR
We present a validation of Wilson's XCSR from two points of view: sensitivity of real-valued XCS specific parameters on performance and design of classifier representation with classifier operators such as mutation and covering. Expand
