We believe that an essential feature in machine learning is the real time satisfaction of multiple objectives such as identification, tracking, etc. The machine learning problem may be viewed as a nonlinear adaptive control problem where the environment plays the role of the `plant,' while the learner is the controller. Multiobjective optimization (MOO) in the control problem typically deals with simultaneous optimization of more than one objective, where each objective is described via a cost functional. In such a situation there often exists a region of tradeoff wherein one cost may be improved at the expense of others. Such a region is called the Pareto optimal (PO) set. A parameterization of this set simplifies the attainment of the existing tradeoff. Working within the Pareto set guaranties optimum tradeoff. As an example this algorithm is applied to the control of a dc motor.
