Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new concept, thinning-out, for reducing the number of trials in skill discovery. Thinning-out means to skip over such trials that are unlikely to improve discovering results, in the same way as "pruning" in a search tree. We show that our thinning-out technique significantly reduces the number of trials. In addition, we apply thinning-out to the discovery of good physical motions by legged robots in a simulation environment. By using thinning-out, our virtual robots can discover sophisticated motions that is much different from the initial motion in a reasonable amount of trials.
