Abstract: Recently, the intelligent agent has become one of the important issues in Artificial Intelligence. The intelligent agent is expected to think and to act like a human to accomplish a given task in the near future. Generally, if given a goal to the intelligent agent, it is supposed to perform some actions by itself and adapt to environments to achieve the goal. The intelligent agent must fine the optimal solutions form given user’s goals and the environments that the agent explores/ many researches attempted to solve these kinds of problems. Reinforcement learning is the learning algorithm that has been used for the intelligent agents in the dynamic environments in order to satisfy the autonomy and the adaptability. The reinforcement learning problem is to maximize the numerical reward signal in a given environment. Out of many reinforcement learning algorithms, Q-learning is the most famous on which stores Q-values associated with each state-action pair in a look-up table. But tabular formulation has the limitation of generalization in continuous environment. This problem is solved by adopting the fuzzy inference system (FIS) in Fuzzy Q-learning (FQL) algorithm proposed in [2]. But the FQL algorithm only adjusts the parameters of fuzzy systems and do not involve structure identification. Structure identification is achieved in Dynamic Fuzzy Q-Learning (DFQL) Algorithm proposed in [3]. It constructs a structure online. Although the rules can be generated online, the redundant rules can not be deleted. Some rules which are no more active are pruned in the recently developed algorithm, Dynamic Self-Generated Fuzzy Q-Learning (DSGFQL)/ This thesis focuses on the actual implementation of currently developed algorithms, DSGFQL, DFQL, and FQL. The experimental results cooperated with simulation results shows the superiorities of fuzzy control algorithms to the basic control algorithm.
