Abstract

Social interaction is the basic ability for animals to survive. It is difficult for a machine to interact with human or other animals because it is not clear how the machine should interact. This paper examines whether an artificial dot controlled by a machine can interact with a medaka and induce a desired behavior. The dot is displayed on a monitor. We use deep Q network (DQN) to learn how to move the dot. As a result, the DQN could learn some basic elements to interact with the medaka and the desired behavior could be induced.
