As the title says, should I reset the exploration rate between trials?
I am currently doing the Open AI pendulum task and after a number of trials my model started playing but did not take any actions (i.e. didn't perform any significant swing). The Actor-Critic tutorial I followed did not reset the exploration rate (link) but it seems like there are lots of mistakes in general.
I assume that it should be reset since the model might start from a new unknown situation in a different trial and not know what to do without exploring.
