### How was the DQN trained to play many games?

Some people claim that DQN was used to play many Atari games. But what actually happened? Was DQN trained only once (with some data from all games) or was it trained separately for each game? What was ...

### When can we say an RL algorithm learns an Atari game?

If an Atari game's rewards can be between $-100$ and $100$, when can we say an agent learned to play this game? Should it get the reward very close to $100$ for each instance of the game? Or it is ...

### Deep Reinforcement Learning Atari: how does the agent understand motion?

Basic deep reinforcement learning methods use as input an image for the current state, do some convolutions on that image, apply some reinforcement learning algorithm and it is solved. Let us take the ...

### IQN bellman target: using Z vs using Q

IQN paper (https://arxiv.org/abs/1806.06923) uses distributional bellman target: $$\delta^{\tau,\tau'}_t = r_t + \gamma Z_{\tau'}(x_{t+1}, \pi_{\beta}(x_{t+1})) - Z_{\tau}(x_t, a_t)$$ And optimizes: ...

### Too slow search using MCTS in OpenAI Atari games

I'm recently using Monte Carlo Tree Search in OpenAi Gym Atari, but the result isn't satisfying. Without render, the game lasts about 180 steps ( env.step() was called this much time ) with random ...

### Why does the Atari Gym Amidar environment only move after a certain number of episodes? [closed]

When I try to run Amidar even without RL code, I cannot get the environment to move immediately. It takes about 100 steps before the game actually starts moving. I use the following simple code to ...

### Why isn't my DQN agent improving when trained on Atari Breakout?

Lately, I have implemented DQN for Atari Breakout. Here is the code: https://github.com/JeremieGauthier/AI_Exercices/blob/master/Atari_Breakout/DQN_Breakout.py I have trained the agent for over ...

### Neuroevolution + RL: How to make sure my policies are more diverse?

I currently implemented Deep Neuroevolution and used it on a couple of Atari games. For my implementation I used a similar Genetic Algorithm, network and setup as the Uber AI Deep Neuroevolution paper ...
