A Corporate XCS

Previously we have applied rule linkage to ZCS and shown that the resultant system demonstrates performance improvements over ZCS in a series of sequential tasks, particularly tasks which present ambiguous stimuli to the system. In this paper we show that similar benefits can be gained by applying rule linkage to the more complex XCS. We then show that the benefits of rule-linkage can be increased by further XCS specific modifications to the system’s rule-linkage mechanisms.
