28, No. 7, August/September 1995). The increasing number of publications in the literature of various fields of applications is likewise very important, since these bring AD to the attention of potential users instead of only practitioners. These books and articles as cited in their extensive bibliographies show a large and increasing sphere of applications of AD. 5 Beyond AD Perhaps the bright future for AD predicted 40 years ago by Wilkins has arrived or is on the near horizon. There is general acceptance of AD by the optimization and interval computation communities.

The environment and the RLS are both assumed to have memory at time t of the previous time t − 1. The goal of the RLS is to learn how to maximize the sum of expected U ( U ) over all future time. Ironically, my efforts here were inspired in part by an earlier paper of Minsky [172], where he proposed reinforcement learning as a pathway to true general-purpose AI. Early efforts to build general-purpose RL systems were no more successful than early efforts to train MLPs for supervised learning, but in 1968 [531] I proposed what was then a new approach to reinforcement learning.

Section 3 will summarize backwards differentiation capabilities we have developed and used. For the AD community, the most important benefit of this paper may be the new ways of using the derivatives in various applications. However, for reasons of space, I will weave the discussion of those applications into Sects. 2 and 3 and provide citations and URLs to more information. This paper does not represent the official views of NSF. However, many parts of NSF would be happy to receive more proposals to strengthen this important emerging area of research.
