Neural networks for self-learning control systems

Approaches to Evolutionary Robotics
PDF (626 KB)

Commonly used machine learning algorithms require a set of training examples comprised of both a hypothetical input and a desired output, and often the desired answer is an action for the robot to take. The robot can, at best, receive a value indicating the success or failure of a given action taken. One solution to this sort of problem framework is evolutionary algorithms, where the fitness function need only encode the success or failure of a given controller, rather than precise action. Algorithms in evolutionary robotics (ER) often work on populations of candidate controllers, initially selected from some distribution. This population is then repeatedly modified according to a fitness function. In genetic algorithms, the population of candidate controllers is repeatedly grown according to crossover, mutation and other operators and then culled according to the fitness function. The candidate controllers in ER can be taken from a subset of the set of artificial neural networks. Evolutionary robotics has may objectives, including creating useful controllers for real-world robots tasks, exploring the intricacies of evolutionary theory, reproducing psychological phenomena, and finding out about biological neural networks by studying artificial ones.

1. This loan will provide the necessary capital to purchase software, marketing materials and entrepreneurial educational tool taught by master entrepreneur and CEO of Nouveau Riche University, Jim Piccolo. With the ability to now focus full-time as opposed to free-time I expect to increase my income to a respectable $1,800/month.
2. Seriously folks, this loan will be used to take my Forex Trading Strategy, which is working very well, to the next level. Look at the picture in the listing. Over 150% profit in 13 days of active, 24 hour, automated trading using my software. (Turns out never traded for real money)
3. This loan will be used to help me invest 10k into a forex managed account investment fund. I am a good candidate for this loan because I am investing my own money...

No Loss Trading Plan that really works for your.

Are you in the Dallas, TX area? I have a trading plan that is non speculative, non directional, and generates a very high rate of return. It works everyday - all the time - with no losses - (yes) it "really" works. I have been trading the financial markets for 30 years and I understand exactly what I am doing. As a demo, I started trading a friends Forex account of just $6,000.00 on 12/20/07 and I generated a 100% return in just three weeks using leverage with no losses. Luck was not part of the success. A properly funded brokerage account will never have losses. I know it sounds unlikely but I can demonstrate and prove it "is" true. It took me most of my life to develop this technique and it did not come cheap to me. I call it my zero sum no loss trading plan and it will beat any...

$2000 for an online course huh. If it works for you. A few weeks is really good to actually begin to profit in live trading. Staying consistant over the long hual is the trick now. That takes discipline. Avoid the blowout sessions where a trader chases good money after bad trying to recoup losses. Or greedily jumps into a trade with little research.
I home schooled myself over about a year period. I didn't have the money to trade at the time so it really didn't matter. I was content to learn and save till I had it. I had some expenses that was a priority over forex. When I did have the extra cash not swallowed by life I had been profiting for over 6 months on paper and the transition to live was relatively seemless.
I'm getting nice returns now for almost a year live. From...
