Looking for a suitable strategy for each problem - Multiple tasks approach to navigation learning task

By Akitoshi Ogawa and Takashi Omori


We suppose the functional parts combination (FPC) model, whereby a problem solving strategy is acquired depending on the tasks given. The model is based on the neuroscientific fact that each cerebral cortical area has a different role and is selectively activated depending on the task. FPC model is a meta learning model that consists of a set of functional parts and a sequence of control signals that specifies their combination. The functional parts are combined depending on the situation, to realize a processing circuit required for the situation. We use genetic algorithm for searching the control signals. We examine the model by evaluating the difference in acquired behavior of (1) two agents with different functional parts working on the same navigational task and (2) two agents with the same functional parts working on different tasks. We show that the agent using FPC model acquires learning strategies suitable for the given problems
