Learning and Reusing Goal-Specific Policies for Goal-Driven Autonomy [chapter]

Ulit Jaidee, Héctor Muñoz-Avila, David W. Aha
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For example, Q-learning is particularly slow to learn a policy to win complex strategy games. We propose GRL, the first GDA system capable of learning and reusing goal-specific policies.  ...  GRL is a case-based goal-driven autonomy (GDA) agent embedded in the RL cycle.  ...  The views, opinions, and findings contained in this paper are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as representing the official views or policies, either expressed or implied, of NRL or the  ...

Achieving the Promise of Reuse with Agent Components [chapter]

Martin L. Griss, Robert R. Kessler
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we describe the vision and progress we have made towards developing a robust infrastructure, methods, and tools for this goal.  ...  for independent development, for scalable and robust systems and dynamic evolution of features, and for autonomic self-managing systems.  ...  Further research and experimentation is needed to make it easier to define and implement different agent systems directly in terms of their features and capabilities.  ...

Case-Based Goal-Driven Coordination of Multiple Learning Agents [chapter]

Ulit Jaidee, Héctor Muñoz-Avila, David W. Aha
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Although several recent studies have been published on goal reasoning (i.e., the study of agents that can self-select their goals), none have focused on the task of learning and acting on large state and  ...  We introduce GDA-C, a case-based goal reasoning algorithm that divides the state and action space among cooperating learning agents.  ...  The Class-Specific Policy Learner learns policies for new goals and refines the policies of existing goals.  ...

Programming and Deployment of Autonomous Swarms using Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning [article]

Jayson Boubin, Codi Burley, Peida Han, Bowen Li, Barry Porter, Christopher Stewart
2021 arXiv   pre-print
To build swarms today, developers handcraft their own software for storing, aggregating, and learning from observations. We present the Fleet Computer, a platform for developing and managing swarms.  ...  Autonomous systems (AS) carry out complex missions by continuously observing the state of their surroundings and taking actions toward a goal.  ...  ., images) to application-specific feature vectors.

Hierarchical motor control in mammals and machines

Josh Merel, Matthew Botvinick, Greg Wayne
2019 Nature Communications  
It is becoming clear that specific, well-motivated hierarchical design elements repeatedly arise when engineering these flexible control systems.  ...  However, most attention is given to discrete tasks with simple action spaces, such as board games and classic video games.  ...  Supplementary video examples of the NPMP architecture being reused are courtesy of Arun Ahuja and other co-authors associated with that research.  ...
