Foundations of Learning Classifier Systems by Larry Bull, Tim Kovacs

By Larry Bull, Tim Kovacs

This quantity brings jointly contemporary theoretical paintings in studying Classifier structures (LCS), that's a desktop studying procedure combining Genetic Algorithms and Reinforcement studying. Foundations of studying Classifier structures combines and exploits many delicate Computing techniques right into a unmarried coherent framework. It contains self-contained history chapters on comparable fields (reinforcement studying and evolutionary computation) adapted for a classifier platforms viewers and written by means of stated gurus of their region - in addition to a proper historic unique paintings via John Holland.

Linear gradient-descent methods are simple and they are particularly wellsuited to reinforcement learning [12]. A key aspect determining how well these methods work in practice, though, is the quality of the features they use. The features must represent whatever task-relevant qualities of the state may be needed to discriminate one state from another, as well as any associated feature interactions that may be important. 1 Tile coding Coarse coding [7] is a general approach to defining a set of adequate features.

Average square errors for tile coding and XCS prediction number of tiles and the way they are organized is fixed. On these test functions, we use 2048 grid-like tiles each having width 1/256. The tiles are organized into 8 tilings that are offset as described previously. 2. For the XCS prediction mechanism, the population of classifiers is fixed at 2048 rules generated randomly using a probability of 1/3 for placing the # symbol at any given position in a rule condition. Each classifier condition is 8 bits, giving every classifier the same input resolution as one of the grid-like tiles.
