Training an ANN to control a Robot using a Genetic Algorithm - Walking

#artificialintelligence

The purpose of the report is to detail the process of training an Artificial Neural Network to control a robot. This report will be divided into several sections. The goal of this report is to demonstrate the ability of an ANN to control a robot. Specifically, it will stand and walk. In the previous reports, the GA was used to evolve an ideal Artificial Neural Network topology, which was then refined via backpropagation learning.

The goal of this report is to demonstrate the ability of an ANN to control a robot to stand. In the previous reports the GA was used to evolve an ideal Artificial Neural Network topology, which was then refined via backpropagation learning. For this report the same techniques will be applied to the process of training an ANN to control a simulated robot, referred to simBot in this report.

Golden parachutes can't seem to stay out of the news. Last year, Jeff Smisek, the former CEO of United Airlines, received a separation payment of 4.875 million in cash along with additional equity awards and other benefits for a total of close to 37 million after being ousted from his company. Can it also transform the nation? Hillary Clinton was campaigning for her husband in January 1992 when she learned of the race's newest flare-up: Gennifer Flowers had just released tapes of phone calls with Bill Clinton to back up her claim they had had an affair. We tend to associate salads most closely with spring and summer, when fresh produce is at its peak and when we're all in the mood for lighter, fresher-tasting meals.


Artificial Intelligence Robotics

#artificialintelligence

Robotics is a domain in artificial intelligence that deals with the study of creating intelligent and efficient robots. Robots are the artificial agents acting in real world environment. Robots are aimed at manipulating the objects by perceiving, picking, moving, modifying the physical properties of object, destroying it, or to have an effect thereby freeing manpower from doing repetitive functions without getting bored, distracted, or exhausted. Robotics is a branch of AI, which is composed of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science for designing, construction, and application of robots. The robots have mechanical construction, form, or shape designed to accomplish a particular task.
