Evolution of meta-parameters in reinforcement learning algorithm

Proceedings 2003 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2003) (Cat. No.03CH37453), 2003

A crucial issue in reinforcement learning applications is how to set meta- parameters, such as the learning rate and "temperature" for exploration, to match the demands of the task and the environment. In this paper, we propose a method to adjust meta-parameters of reinforcement learning by real-number genetic algorithm. It was shown in simulations of foraging tasks that appropriate settings ...

  • Evolution of meta-parameters in reinforcement learning algorithm

    A crucial issue in reinforcement learning applications is how to set meta- parameters, such as the learning rate and "temperature" for exploration, to match the demands of the task and the environment. In this paper, we propose a method to adjust meta-parameters of reinforcement learning by real-number genetic algorithm. It was shown in simulations of foraging tasks that appropriate settings of meta-parameters, which are strongly dependent on each other, can be found by evolution. Furthermore, we verified in hardware experiments using cyber rodent (CR) robots that the meta-parameters evolved in simulation are helpful for learning in real hardware.

  • Biometric Identification of Mice

    We present a new application area for biometric recognition: the identification of laboratory animals to replace today's invasive methods. Through biometric identification a non invasive identification technique is applied with a code space that is restricted only by the uniqueness of the biometric identifier in use, and with an error rate that is predictable. In this work we present the blood vessel pattern in a mouse-ear as a suitable biometric identifier used for mouse identification. Genuine and impostor score distributions are presented using a total of 50 mice. An EER of 2.5% is reported for images captured at the same instance of time which verifies the distinctive property of the biometric identifier

  • A simplified geometric calibration method for rotating triple head pinhole SPECT system using point source

    Micro-pinhole SPECT system with conventional multiple-head gamma cameras has the advantage of high magnification factor for imaging of small animals such as rodents. However, several geometric factors should be calibrated to obtain the SPECT image with good image quality. We developed a simplified geometric calibration method for rotating triple- head pinhole SPECT system and assessed the effects of the calibration using several phantom and rodent imaging studies. Trionix Triad XLT9 triple-head SPECT scanner with 1.0 mm pinhole apertures were used for the experiments. Approximately centered one point source was scanned to track the angle- dependent positioning errors. The centroid of point source was determined by the center of mass calculation. Axially departed two point sources were scanned to calibrate radius of rotation from pinhole to center of rotation. To verify the improvements by the geometric calibrations, we compared the spatial resolution of the reconstructed image of Tc-99m point source with and without the calibration. SPECT image of micro performance phantom with hot rod inserts was acquired and several animal imaging studies were performed. Exact sphere shape of the point source was obtained by applying the calibration and axial resolution was improved. Lesion detectability and image quality was also much improved by the calibration in the phantom and animal studies. Serious degradation of micro- pinhole SPECT images due to the geometric errors could be corrected using a simplified calibration method using only one or two point sources.

  • Imaging performance measurements of SiliSPECT

    SiliSPECT, a multi-pinhole, multi-detector SPECT system, was designed to image targeted-regions of rodents at sub-300 ¿m resolution with motionless data acquisition and a special reconstruction method. High spatial resolution is achieved with thick silicon double-sided strip detectors (DSSDs) and 250 ¿m pinhole apertures. Each of the two heads contains two stacked DSSDs, which improves total detection efficiency. The stacked detector, multi-pinhole aperture configuration also permits experimental validation of simulated synthetic collimator image reconstruction. SiliSPECT was assembled and operates stably with forced air cooling. Performance measurements, including intrinsic detection efficiency, sensitivity, and dead time were made. To reconstruct tomographic images with a calculated system matrix requires accurate estimation of geometric calibration parameters. We present details of our approach for determining these parameters.

  • Research on the restoration of motion-blurred images of Ochotona curzoniae

    Ochotona curzoniae is one of the main creature calamities in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. With the development of advanced biological recognition technologies, a new scientific method is provided for the Ochotona curzoniae's research using an automatic identification system of this animal. But due to the relative motion between the object and the video camera, the obtained image of Ochotona curzoniae is often blurred in the process of image acquisition. The technology of image restoration can eliminate the blur of image and improve the quality of image. In this paper, on the basis of the analysis of the degradation model of motion blurred image and the restoration process of motion blurred image, the methods of image restoration of motion-blurred images of Ochotona curzoniae are studied and implemented. These motion blurred images are restored by the methods of inverse filter and Wiener filter to improve the quality of the image of Ochotona curzoniae to better carry out the follow-up feature extraction and target recognition.

  • 3D X-ray microtomography applied to structural and mechanical characterization of arterial trees

  • Performing longitudinal measurements in rodents using small animal PET imaging

    Although tremendous effort and finances were spent in developing small animal PET scanners, this technology remains under utilized as a research tool to study disease states. To advance this goal, we previously developed a microfluidic blood sampling device to overcome the problem of blood sampling and fluid volume loss when performing quantitative PET studies. The device was previously shown to be reliable for deriving input function without changing the physiological stability of a mouse. In this study, we improved methodologies and optimized the animal surgical preparation necessary for prolonging the patency of chronic indwelling catheters. We have also added several features to improve functionality and ease of use for a new prototype of a microfluidic blood sampler and tested this device for accuracy in determining FDG blood curves in rats with a chronic indwelling catheter. We modified the hardware and software of the previous blood sampling device to reduce the cost and provide a more user-friendly interface. We successfully prepared the animal for deriving input functions for multiple microPET studies. Our results suggest that longitudinal microPET imaging in the same animal is possible. These new developments should increase the use of PET imaging in drug development and translational research using small animals.

  • The diet of Saker Falcon (Falco cherrug) on the eastern fringe of Gurban Tunggut Desert, China

    The diet of the Saker Falcon (Falco cherrug) as an endangered species in China, has been seldom studied. During the 2005 breeding season, we identified 212 prey items from among 342 pellets and 236 items of prey remains from 6 active nests of the Saker Falcon. Identified prey included 23 species: 3 mammals, 17 birds, 2 reptiles and 1 insect. In terms of frequency of occurrence, birds comprised 52.4% of the diet, mammals 21.7%, insect 17.5% and reptiles 8.4%. In term of biomass, birds comprised 44.4% of the diet, mammals 46.9%, reptiles 8.3% and insect 0.4%. Our results suggest that this falcon is an opportunistic hunter and feeds on a wide range of animals throughout its habitat.

  • Quantification of Spinal Cord Injury Level Using Somatosensory Evoked Potentials

    This paper uses a modified correlation metric to study the somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) in rodents afflicted with spinal cord injury (SCI). It has been shown that specific features of the SEP signal are a strong indicator of the integrity of the spinal pathway. The metric used in this paper exploits an adaptive template tailored to specific features of interest in the SEP signal, thereby providing a more robust assessment of the level of SCI compared to conventional metrics such as Pearson's correlation coefficient. Results are presented using actual SEP signals collected on rodents with various levels of SCI.
