Abstract

Previous machine learning algorithms use a given base action set designed by hand or enable locomotion for a complicated task through trial and error processes with a sophisticated reward function. These generated actions are designed for a specific task, which makes it difficult to apply them to other tasks. This paper proposes an algorithm to obtain a base action set that does not depend on specific tasks and that is usable universally. The proposed algorithm enables as much interoperability among multiple tasks and machine learning methods as possible. A base action set that effectively changes the external environment was chosen as a candidate. The algorithm obtains this base action set on the basis of the hypothesis that an action to effectively change the external environment can be found by observing events to find undiscovered sensor values. The process of obtaining a base action set was validated through a simulation experiment with a differential wheeled robot. View Full-Text
