Enhanced POET: Open-Ended Reinforcement Learning through Unbounded Invention of Learning Challenges and their Solutions

R. Wang, J. Lehman, A. Rawal, J. Zhi, Y. Li, J. Clune, K. Stanley
Creating open-ended algorithms, which generate their own never-ending stream of novel and appropriately challenging learning opportunities, could help to automate and accelerate progress in machine learning. A recent step in this direction is the Paired Open-Ended Trailblazer (POET), an algorithm that generates and solves its own challenges, and allows solutions to goal-switch between challenges to avoid local optima. Here we introduce and empirically validate two new innovations to the original algorithm, as well as two external innovations designed to help elucidate its full potential. [...] [PDF]

An Atari Model Zoo for Analyzing, Visualizing, and Comparing Deep Reinforcement Learning Agents

F. Such, V. Madhavan, R. Liu, R. Wang, P. Castro, Y. Li, L. Schubert, M. Bellemare, J. Clune, J. Lehman
Much human and computational effort has aimed to improve how deep reinforcement learning algorithms perform on benchmarks such as the Atari Learning Environment. Comparatively less effort has focused on understanding what has been learned by such methods, and investigating and comparing the representations learned by different families of reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms.
