TerrainRL Sim

Abstract We provide \(88\) challenging simulation environments that range in difficulty. The difficulty in these \environments is linked not only to the number of dimensions in the action space but also to the task complexity. Using more complex and accurate simulations will help push the field closer to creating human-level …


Demystifying the Many Deep Reinforcement Learning Algorithms

Intro In recent years there has been an explosion in Deep Reinforcement learning research resulting in the creation of many different RL algorithms that work with deep networks. In DeepRL and RL in general the goal is to optimize a policy \(\pi(a|s,\theta)\) with parameters \(\theta\) with respect …

Deep Rienforcement Learning: A course on the subject

Reinforcemen learning is large and accelerating area of research. The recent advances in combining RL method with Deep learning have given way to solutions to challenging problems Like playing Atari and Robotic Manipulation. These advances have been wonderful but as many practitioners might have relized getting these methods to work …

KL Divergence Regularization for RL

Intro Regularization is a very common practice in machine learning. In supervized learning it is used to reduce model complexity. It also helps prevent the model from over fitting the test data. In RL because of the availablility of limitless data regularization does not need to be used to reduce …
