  • Abstract Learning plays a vital role in the development of autonomous agents. In this paper, we explore the use of reinforcement learning to “shape” a robot to perform a predefined target behavior. We connect both simulated and real robots to Alecsys , a parallel implementation of a learning classifier system with an extended genetic algorithm. After classifying different kinds of Animat-like behaviors, we explore the effects on learning of different types of agent's architecture and training… CONTINUE READING
