A symbol's role in learning low-level control functions.

Chris. Drummond
This thesis demonstrates how the power of symbolic processing can be exploited in the learning of low level control functions. It proposes a novel hybrid architecture with a tight coupling between a variant of symbolic planning and reinforcement learning. This architecture combines the strengths of the function approximation of subsymbolic learning with the more abstract compositional nature of symbolic learning. The former is able to represent mappings of world states to actions in an accurate...
