Inverse Reinforcement Learning and Finding Proper Reward Signals for Snake-like Robots


Learning is a process that can be observed across all living creatures – and also machines with the advent of sophisticated hardware and algorithms. This article introduces preference-based inverse reinforcement learning and explains how it can support a snake-like robot to learn to move forward efficiently.

Humans are constantly being taught and acquire knowledge: first by parents, later in school by teachers and at work by colleagues. In fact, learning is a process that
