Goal-Driven Learning in Multistrategy Reasoning and Learning Systems

This chapter presents a computational model of introspective multistrategy learning, which is a deliberative or strategic learning process in which a reasoner introspects about its own performance to decide what to learn and how to learn it. The reasoner introspects about its own performance on a reasoning task, assigns credit or blame for its performance, identifies what it needs to learn to improve its performance, formulates learning goals to acquire the required knowledge, and pursues its learning goals using multiple learning strategies. Our theory models a process of learning that is active, experiential, opportunistic, diverse, and introspective. This chapter also describes two computer systems that implement our theory, one that learns diagnostic knowledge during a troubleshooting task and one that learns multiple kinds of causal and explanatory knowledge during a story understanding task.
