DeepMind’s AI automatically generates reinforcement learning algorithms

In a study published on the preprint server Arxiv.org, DeepMind researchers describe a reinforcement learning algorithm-generating technique that discovers what to predict and how to learn it by interacting with environments. They claim the generated algorithms perform well on a range of challenging Atari video games, achieving “non-trivial” performance indicative of the technique’s generalizability. Reinforcement […]
