Poor Ernest 10.3

Unable to display content. Adobe Flash is required.
We hesitate calling this experiment poor Ernest 10.3 or happy Ernest 10.3. Maybe this is the first implementation of artificial dizziness :-).

After the initial learning phase, we introduce fish that move (step 158). We were happily surprised to see that Ernest 10.3 was not that bad at catching moving fish. We find it fairly honorable for a purely feed-forward adaptive system.
