Swarm robot collaboration is not a trivial task especially when there is no central controller. The state space and action space scales massively with factors like the number of robots, the number of sensors and sensor complexity, a framework that allows multiple robots to perform reinforcement learning over a pool of algorithms, and gives a Q-learning based implementation of the framework. We then show through the application of cooperative self-assembling in changing environments that under the self-organising swarm assumptions, performing reinforcement learning over algorithms has an advantage over learning actions. Sherry is working on a framework that allows multiple robots to perform reinforcement learning over a pool of algorithms, using different machine learning algorithms such as Q-learning.
