The \forward modeling" approach of Jor-dan and Rumelhart has been shown to be applicable when supervised learning methods are to be used for solving reinforcement learning tasks. Because such tasks are natural candidates for the application of reinforcement learning methods, there is a need to evaluate the relative merits of these two learning methods on reinforcement learning tasks. We present one such comparison here on a task involving learning to control an unstable, non-minimum phase… CONTINUE READING
