  • Patent number: 10845769
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for imputation in computer-based reasoning systems. The techniques include performing the following until there are no more cases in a computer-based reasoning model with missing fields for which imputation is desired: determining which cases have fields to impute (e.g., missing fields) in the computer-based reasoning model and determining conviction scores for the cases that have fields to impute. The techniques proceed by determining for which cases to impute data based on conviction scores. For each of the determined one or more cases with missing fields to impute data is imputed for the missing field, and the case is modified with the imputed data. Control of a system is then caused using the updated computer-based reasoning model.

  • Patent number: 10839302
    Abstract: A control system and method for controlling a system, which employs a data set representing a plurality of states and associated trajectories of an environment of the system; and which iteratively determines an estimate of an optimal control policy for the system. The iterative process performs the substeps, until convergence, of estimating a long term value for operation at a respective state of the environment over a series of predicted future environmental states; using a complex return of the data set to determine a bound to improve the estimated long term value; and producing an updated estimate of an optimal control policy dependent on the improved estimate of the long term value. The control system may produce an output signal to control the system directly, or output the optimized control policy. The system preferably is a reinforcement learning system which continually improves.
