The BOXES algorithm of Michie and Chambers (1968) has proved to be an effective and flexible method for learning to control dynamic systems. The algorithm, in its original form has been used a benchmark for many experiments in control tasks such as pole balancing. Recent work in our laboratory has shown that the BOXES algorithm can be improved to yield very good learning rates. We describe experiments on a variety of update functions and discuss their robustness. We also develop the notion of… CONTINUE READING
