Learning the structure of the world: The adaptive nature of state-space and action representations in multi-stage decision-making [article]

Amir Dezfouli, Benrard W Balleine
2017 bioRxiv   pre-print
Here we show that, in the absence of such a priori knowledge, state and action representations adapt to reflect the structure of the world.  ...  State-space and action representations form the building blocks of decision-making processes in the brain; states map external cues to the current situation of the agent whereas actions provide the set  ...  Learning the value of different actions in various states of the environment is essential for decision-making in 296 multi-stage environments.  ...

Learning the structure of the world: The adaptive nature of state-space and action representations in multi-stage decision-making

Amir Dezfouli, Bernard W. Balleine, Alireza Soltani
2019 PLoS Computational Biology  
State-space and action representations form the building blocks of decision-making processes in the brain; states map external cues to the current situation of the agent whereas actions provide the set  ...  Here we studied how state and action representations adapt to reflect the structure of the world when such a priori knowledge is not available.  ...  In the current study, using a sequential decision-making task in rats, we sought to investigate whether state-space and action representations adapt to the structure of the world.  ...

Structural learning: Embedding discoveries and the dynamics of production

Antonio Andreoni
2014 Structural Change and Economic Dynamics  
The concept of structural learning is introduced to identify the continuous process of structural adjustment triggered and oriented by existing productive structures at each point in time.  ...  The paper then investigates the tension between structure and agency present in structural learning trajectories, and examines the form it takes in different productive organisations.  ...  forms because non-specialised multi-tasks agents cannot make such products.  ...

Exploring applications of deep reinforcement learning for real-world autonomous driving systems [article]

Victor Talpaert, Ibrahim Sobh, B Ravi Kiran, Patrick Mannion, Senthil Yogamani, Ahmad El-Sallab, Patrick Perez
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We first provide an overview of the tasks in autonomous driving systems, reinforcement learning algorithms and applications of DRL to AD systems.  ...  In general, DRL is still at its infancy in terms of usability in real-world applications.  ...  RL algorithms may learn estimates of state values, environment models or policies. In real-world applications, simple tabular representations of estimates are not scalable.  ...

Designing Grounded Agents: From RoboCup to the Real-World [chapter]

Christopher Stanton
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper discusses the nature and role of "grounding" in designing programs for controlling autonomous mobile robots.  ...  That is, currently agents tend to be grounded by their designer's understanding of the world, task, and robot.  ...  The process of embedding an artificial agent in an environment involves identifying regularity and structure within the world that can be used for decision-making.  ...
