Toward Learning Robots, Paperback / softback Book

Toward Learning Robots Paperback / softback

Edited by Walter Van De Velde

Part of the Special Issues of <i>Artificial Intelligence</i> series

Paperback / softback


The contributions in Toward Learning Robots address the question of how a robot can be designed to acquire autonomously whatever it needs to realize adequate behavior in a complex environment.

In-depth discussions of issues, techniques, and experiments in machine learning focus on improving ease of programming and enhancing robustness in unpredictable and changing environments, given limitations of time and resources available to researchers.

The authors show practical progress toward a useful set of abstractions and techniques to describe and automate various aspects of learning in autonomous systems.

The close interaction of such a system with the world reveals opportunities for new architectures and learning scenarios and for grounding symbolic representations, though such thorny problems as noise, choice of language, abstraction level of representation, and operationality have to be faced head-on.
