Go-Explore: a New Approach for Hard-Exploration Problems

A. Ecoffet, J. Huizinga, J. Lehman, K. Stanley, J. Clune
A grand challenge in reinforcement learning is intelligent exploration, especially when rewards are sparse or deceptive. Two Atari games serve as benchmarks for such hard-exploration domains: Montezuma's Revenge and Pitfall. On both games, current RL algorithms perform poorly, even those with intrinsic motivation, which is the dominant method to improve performance on hard-exploration domains. [...] [PDF]
