Inter-Layer Learning Towards Emergent Cooperative Behavior
As applications for artificially intelligent agents increase in complexity we can no longer rely on clever heuristics and hand-tuned behaviors to develop their programming. Even the interaction between various components cannot be reduced to simple rules, as the complexities of realistic dynamic environments become unwieldy to characterize manually. To cope with these challenges, we propose an architecture for inter-layer learning where each layer is constructed with a higher level of complexity and control. Using RoboCup soccer as a testbed, we demonstrate the potential of this architecture for the development of effective, cooperative, multi-agent systems. At the lowest layer, individual basic skills are developed and refined in isolation through supervised and reinforcement learning techniques. The next layer uses machine learning to decide, at any point in time, which among a subset of the first layer tasks should be executed. This process is repeated for successive layers, thus p...
