Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning
1993 (English)In: ICANN'93 eds S. Gielen and B. Kappen: Amsterdam, 1993Conference paper (Refereed)
A hierarchical representation of the input-output transition function in a learning system is suggested. The choice of either representing the knowledge in a learning system as a discrete set of input-output pairs or as a continuous input-output transition function is discussed. The conclusion that both representations could be efficient, but at different levels of abstraction is made. The difference between strategies and actions is defined. An algorithm for using adaptive critic methods in a two-level reinforcement learning system is presented. Simulations of a one dimensional hierarchical reinforcement learning system is presented.
