[Ultrastable Neuroendocrine Robot Controller]

[Masters dissertation]

Attributes of ultrastability as an adaption mechanism in a hormone-modulated neural robot controller were investigated in a simulation. Action-selection based on hormone-driven utilities of memory items was used to alternate between mineral gathering and recharging.


Results showed that the implemented ultrastability mechanism could be applied to both fast-operating neurons and slowly operating glands, although its main limitation was that the adaptation was unstable when a task required an unexpectedly varied satisfaction time.

Keywords:
Artificial neural network, ultrastability, homeostasis, robot controller
