III JORNADA DE INTELIGENCIA COMPUTACIONAL
TUTORIAL: “Evolving Neural Networks”
Por Ph.D Risto Miikkulainen
Dirigido a:

Estudiantes de pregrado y posgrado, profesionales, docentes y todos aquellos interesados en conocer los avances que se están generando relacionados con inteligencia computacional (redes neuronales).

Sobre el tutorial:

Los participantes deberán tener un equipo donde realizar ejercicios prácticos, donde se implementarán agentes inteligentes a través de neuroevolución. A los inscritos se les dará instrucciones para instalar el material del tutorial. El tutorial será impartido en inglés.

Abstract:
Neuroevolution, i.e. evolution of artificial neural networks, has recently emerged as a powerful technique for solving challenging reinforcement learning problems. Compared to traditional (e.g. value-function based) methods, neuroevolution is especially strong in domains where the state of the world is not fully known: The state can be disambiguated through recurrency, and novel situations handled through pattern matching. In this talk, I will review (1) neuroevolution methods that evolve fixed-topology networks, network topologies, and network construction processes, (2) ways of combining traditional neural network learning algorithms with evolutionary methods, and (3) applications of neuroevolution to control, robotics, artificial life, and games.

About Distinguished Lecturer:
Risto Miikkulainen is a professor of computer sciences at the University of Texas at Austin and a Fellow at Sentient Technologies, Inc.  He received an M.S. in engineering from the Helsinki University of Technology, Finland, in 1986, and a Ph.D. in computer science from UCLA in 1990. His current research focuses on methods and applications of neuroevolution, as well as models of natural language processing, and self-organization of the visual cortex; he is an author of over 350 articles in these research areas. He is currently on the Board of Governors of the Neural Network Society, and an action editor of Cognitive Systems Research and IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games.
