Learning From Data Kagan Tumer Oregon State University ! ! y = f(x) = ?? Neural Networks for Nonlinear Control Kagan Tumer Oregon State University ! ! Motivation: ! Control a system with nonlinear dynamics ! Robot ! Satellite ! Air vehicle ! Do we know what the good control strategies are? ! Yes: “teach” neural network those strategies ! Drive a car and record good driver actions for each state ! Fly a helicopter and record good pilot actions for each state ! No: have a neural network discover those strategies ! Let car drive around and provide feedback on performance

Neural Networks Kagan Tumer Oregon State University ! ! Why Neural Networks? ! Units or Neurons ! Neural Network Architectures ! Activation Functions ! Single Layer Feed Forward Networks ! Multi Layer Feed Forward Networks ! Error Backpropagation ! Implementation Issues Why Neural Networks? Kagan Tumer Oregon State University ! ! Neural Network: A massively parallel distributed processor made up of simple processing units. It stores “knowledge”. ! An artificial neural network is similar to the brain in that: ! Knowledge is acquired by the network from its environment through a learning process ! Interneuron connection strengths (synaptic weights) are used to store the acquired knowledge !
