Locally Weighted Regression for Control

This article addresses two topics: learning control and locally weighted regression.
Learning control refers to the process of acquiring a control strategy for a particular control system and a particular task by trial and error. It is usually distinguished from adaptive control (Aström & Wittenmark, 1989) in that the learning system is permitted to fail during the process of learning, resembling how humans and animals acquire new movement strategies. In contrast, adaptive control emphasizes single trial convergence without failure, fulfilling stringent performance constraints, e.g., as needed in life-critical systems like airplanes and industrial robots.
