For example, if I want to do a cat and mouse AI, the cat would wish to minimize the time taken for it to catch the mouse and the mouse would want to maximize that time. The time is analog and thus I cannot use a traditional Xy method but need another method that goes like this:
network.train_against_value(X, y, determinator)
Here, X is more like where the cat and mouse are. y is where the cat or mouse should move, and determinator is the time taken for the mouse to be caught, where the mouse wishes to maximize this value through its output of y and the cat wishes to minimize it. There is one Xy pair for each decision made by the cat and mouse, but one determinator throughout one game. Many games are played to train the AI.
Example: X: (300, 300, 200, 200) -> (mousex, mousey, catx, caty)
Y: (1,3) -> (xmove, ymove) direction, the numbers are then tuned by code for the actual movement to be always 1.
Determinator: 50 -> time for mouse to be caught in seconds
Where it would train so that with every X inputted it outputs a y so that determinator is minimum. Is there a method for train_towards_value as well? If there is no prebuilt method, how do I create one? What is the technical name for this kind of training?
I have two neural networks for the cat and mouse, where the cat is slower than the mouse but is larger and could eat the mouse. Just consider the mouse is difficult to control from the neural network because of inefficiencies so that it is possible for the cat to catch the mouse.
