Abstract

This paper demonstrates a kind of learned ‎helplessness in human being that is ap-‎peared in Fuzzy Reinforcement Learning ‎‎(FRL) algorithm. At the beginning of ‎learning, when an agent continuously per-‎forms actions that cause sequential pun-‎ishments, afterwards it does not usually ‎behave well and often selects actions that ‎evoke punishments. This faulty learning ‎is similar to what is called learned help-‎lessness in social sciences. Here, this ‎problem is demonstrated in training an ‎agent by FRL algorithm. By analyzing ‎this problem, a new reinforcement func-‎tion for prevention is presented. ‎
