We need to find innovative ways of expanding the activity repertoire of robots, including having robots learn their own activities. Here, we explore the suitability of well-known methods for learning with multiple robots and introduce a new method: memetic learning. Memetic learning combines individual experience methods with population-based methods in a novel way that allows for expanding or changing candidate solutions in non-random ways, based on evaluations of strengths and weaknesses of… CONTINUE READING
