Introducing Long Term Memory in an ANN based Multilevel Darwinist Brain
This paper deals with the introduction of long term memory in a Multilevel Darwinist Brain (MDB) structure based on Artificial Neural Networks and its implications on the capability of adapting to new environments and recognizing previously explored ones by autonomous robots. The introduction of long term memory greatly enhances the ability of the organisms that implement the MDB to deal with changing environments and at the same time recover from failures and changes in configurations. The paper describes the mechanism, introduces the long term mermoy within it and provides some examples of its operation both in theoretical problems and on a real robot whose perceptual and actuation mechanisms are changed periodically.
