Ben - It isn't well-known to me. Can you tell me a reference to
read so I can understand why you're saying this? My impression
is that the average engineer would say that
reinforcement learning or temporal-differernce learning are
the best means of credit assignment, and the average AI researcher
would say the bucket brigade or a truth-maintenance and belief-
revision system are the best means, all of which are parallel
That systems implementing the bucket brigade aren't intelligent
doesn't mean that the bucket brigade doesn't work.
