Expert Opinion: This work as far as I can detect is the first introducing Active learning and Forgetting for the Perception-Action paradigm. It was the PhD thesis of Marcos Salganicoff in 1992. The paper (in fact several papers) cited here was published later. The new approach allowed the learner to control when and where in the input space the new examples should be gathered. It balances the cost of gathering the experiences (Exploration) with the cost of misclassification and the execution of the task (Exploitation ).
