Multi Agent Machine Learning A Reinforcement Approach by Howard M. Schwartz


For a decade I’ve taught a course on adaptive management. The course centered on the classical strategies of system identification, utilizing such traditional texts as Ljung [1, 2]. The course addressed conventional strategies of mannequin reference adaptive management and nonlinear adaptive management utilizing Lyapunov strategies. Nevertheless, the idea had develop into out of sync with present engineering apply.

As such, my very own analysis and the main focus of the graduate course modified to incorporate adaptive sign processing, and to include adaptive channel equalization and echo cancellation utilizing the least imply squares (LMS) algorithm. The course title likewise modified, from “Adaptive Management” to “Adaptive and Learning Techniques.” My analysis was nonetheless centered on system identification and nonlinear adaptive management with software to robotics.

Nevertheless, by the early 2000s, I had began work with groups of robots. It was now attainable to make use of helpful robotic kits and low-cost microcontroller boards to construct a number of robots that would work collectively. The graduate course in adaptive and studying programs modified once more; the theoretical materials on nonlinear adaptive management utilizing Lyapunov strategies was lowered, changed with concepts from reinforcement studying.


A complete new vary of functions developed. The groups of robots needed to be taught to work collectively and to compete. At this time, the graduate course focuses on system identification utilizing recursive least squares strategies, some mannequin reference adaptive management (nonetheless utilizing Lyapunov strategies), adaptive sign processing utilizing the LMS algorithm, and reinforcement studying utilizing Q-learning.

The primary two chapters of this ebook current these concepts in an abridged type, however in ample element to reveal the connections among the many studying algorithms which can be out there; how they’re the identical; and the way they’re totally different. There are different texts that cowl this materials intimately [2–4]. The analysis then started to give attention to groups of robots studying to work collectively.

The work examined functions of robots working collectively for search and rescue functions, securing necessary infrastructure and border areas. It additionally started to give attention to reinforcement studying and multiagent reinforcement studying. The robots are the training brokers. How do youngsters learn to play tag? How can we be taught to play soccer, or how do police work collectively to seize a felony?
