Ben Goertzel presents at AGI-08 on a paper by the speaker, Cassio Pennachin, Nil Geissweiller, Moshe Looks, Andre Senna, Welter Silva, Ari Heljakka, and Carlos Lopes. A teaching methodology called Imitative-Reinforcement-Corrective (IRC) learning is described, and proposed as a general approach for teaching embodied non-linguistic AGI systems. IRC may be used with a variety of different learning algorithms, but it is particularly easily described in EC lingo.
In these terms, it is a framework for automatically learning a procedure that generates a desired type of behavior, in which: a set of exemplars of the target behavior-type are utilized for fitness estimation; reinforcement signals from a human teacher are used for fitness evaluation; and the execution of candidate procedures may be modified by the teacher via corrections delivered in real-time.
