Fujitsu, OIST to develop reinforcement learning algorithms using neuroscience insight

ONNA AND KAWASAKI, JAPAN, October 12, 2016 – The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. today announced that they have commenced joint research to develop reinforcement learning algorithms with human-like applied skills, putting to use the latest neuroscience knowledge. Recently, a variety of successful cases has put the spotlight on reinforcement learning, in which a computer acquires an action selection policy suited to the environment through trial and error, based on rewards for certain actions. With reinforcement learning techniques to date, however, the designer had to specify the information of interest beforehand, and the learning process had to be done over again for each problem, limiting applicability in the real world.
