Constructive Incremental Learning from Only Local Information

  title={Constructive Incremental Learning from Only Local Information},
  author={Stefan Schaal and Christopher G. Atkeson},
  journal={Neural Computation},
We introduce a constructive, incremental learning system for regression problems that models data by means of spatially localized linear models. In contrast to other approaches, the size and shape of the receptive field of each locally linear model, as well as the parameters of the locally linear model itself, are learned independently, that is, without the need for competition or any other kind of communication. Independent learning is accomplished by incrementally minimizing a weighted local… CONTINUE READING
