Maximizing Learning Progress: An Internal Reward System for Development [chapter]

Frédéric Kaplan, Pierre-Yves Oudeyer
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This chapter presents a generic internal reward system that drives an agent to increase the complexity of its behavior. This reward system does not reinforce a predefined task.  ...  Its purpose is to drive the agent to progress in learning given its embodiment and the environment in which it is placed.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Luc Steels and the members of the developmental robotics team (Verena Hafner, Claire d'Este and Andrew Whyte) for precious comments on this work.  ...
