Learning to Coordinate Behaviors

  title={Learning to Coordinate Behaviors},
  author={Pattie Maes and Rodney A. Brooks},
We describe an algorithm which allows a behaviorbased robot to learn on the basis of positive and negative feedback when to activate its behaviors. In accordance with the philosophy of behaviorbased robots, the algorithm is completely distributed: each of the behaviors independently tries to sensors find out (i) whether it is relevant (i.e. whether it is at all correlated to positive feedback) and (ii) what the conditions are under which it becomes reliable (i.e. the conditions under which it… CONTINUE READING
