Abstract

Jean is a model of early cognitive development based loosely on Piaget's theory of sensori-motor and pre-operational thought. Like an infant, Jean repeatedly executes schemas, gradually transferring them to new situations and extending them as necessary to accommodate new experiences. We model this process of accommodation with the Experimental State Splitting (ESS) algorithm. ESS learns elementary action schemas, which comprise controllers and maps of the expected dynamics of executing controllers in different conditions. ESS also learns compositions of action schemas called gists. We present tests of the ESS algorithm in three transfer learning experiments, in which Jean transfers learned gists to new situations in a real time strategy military simulator.
