Abstract : A new reinforcement learning (RL) methodology is proposed to design multi-agent systems. In the realistic setting of situated agents with local perception, the task of automatically building a coordinated system is of crucial importance. We use simple reactive agents which learn their own behavior in a decentralized way. To cope with the difficulties inherent to RL used in that framework, we have developed an incremental learning algorithm where agents face more and more complex tasks. We illustrate this general framework on a computer experiment where agents have to coordinate to reach a global goal.
