We present a system that is able to learn descriptions of pictures with an evolutionary algorithm approach. The descriptions are programs in a turtle-graphics language and the described pictures are scenes from an environment with a robotarm acting in a blocks-world. A measure of similarity of pictures is presented which can be computed fast and supplies gradient information with regard to translation, rotation and expansion of objects. The algorithm is very qualified for the classification of… CONTINUE READING
