Trans. SICE   38(7) 641-648   Jul 2002   [Refereed]
This paper proposes a method for acquisition of behavior capable of multiple tasks by an agent with non-predesigned and continuous observation space in partially observable environment. In the proposed method, the agent discriminates the ongoing t...

Proceedings of 2000 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS2000)   885-890   Apr 2010   [Refereed]
One very fundamental problem in behavioral learning by an agent is that it takes quite a long time to acquire optimal behavior. In order to solve this problem, in this paper, we propose an approach to make learning processes more efficient by the ...
Behavior Acquisition in Partically Observable Environments by Autonomous Segmentation of the Observation Space

In this paper, we propose a method by which an agent can autonomously construct a state-representation to achieve state-identification with a sufficient Markovian property. Furthermore, the agent does this using continuous and multi-dimensional ob...
