Figure Generation Progress Report

Right now, I get my computer to generate necessary data for my figures which I will put them in my paper. Hmmm … These are necessary data:

1-Abstract Problem – Structure Learning – ZO and FO (done!)
2-Abstract Problem – Behavior/Structure Learning – ZO (done!)
3-Object Lifting – Structure Learning – ZO/FO (under preparation)
4-Object Lifting – Behavior/Structure Learning – ZO (not yet!)

Seeking a Good Testbed for Testing Expertness-based Fuzzy Q-Learning

Yesterday, I had another session at IPM (Institute of Theoretical Physics and Mathematics) after a long period of not having any. This session was rather odd as I didn’t understand what exactly was going on – or more precisely my expectation of what it should have been was different from what it was. It was a kind of brainstorming session which I can call it constrained brainstorming session which means that it wasn’t cost free to discuss about everything (the atmosphere becomes stressful) but its aim was so. Anyway, we are looking for a good practical example for Fuzzy Q-Learning in which expertness was well-defined. Different applications was suggested such as 1) money exchange, 2) face recognition, 3) modular robots, 4) MIMO control, 5) site traffic controller, and 6) medical diagnosis expert. Have you any idea about it?

How to do Research in AI

I have read some parts of this How to do Research at the MIT AI Lab -which is written by a whole lot of people at MIT- a few times during my research. It is very interesting and motivating (and obviously is general enough that most parts of it can be used by any other AI student). For instance, I have felt some facts that is mentioned in Emotional Factors of this document and they are really true! I must read the whole bunch of suggestions again.
