Abstract : This report is organized into three chapters. The first chapter discusses relevant background material on learning and learning systems. This includes the psychological background of learning and the psychologists' definition of learning. It also includes a brief description and dis cussion of the learning devices proposed in the literature. Chapter 2 gives the Purdue CISL Approach to learning systems. A learning process is defined as applied to control engineering. A discussion of adaptivity and its relationship to learning is included. Chapter 3 presents several different experimental and theoretical approaches to learning control systems which are currently being investigated at Purdue. Some preliminary results on these systems are included. (Author)
