Abstract : Sun microsystems computer equipment acquired through Grant AFOSR-86-0260 is being used for research directed toward developing learning methods and architectures for artificial neural networks, or connectionist networks. The equipment is being used to simulate artificial neural networks implementing a variety of learning methods, including the Associative Reward-Penalty method and the Adaptive Critic Algorithm, as well as the error backpropagation method, and various combinations of these learning methods.
