Learning when and how to generalize knowledge from past experience to novel circumstances is a challenging problem many agents face. In animals, this generalization can be caused by mediated conditioning—when two stimuli gain a relationship through the mediation of a third stimulus. For example, in sensory preconditioning, if a light is always followed by a tone, and that tone is later paired with a shock, the light will come to elicit a fear reaction, even though the light was never directly… CONTINUE READING
