Goal Exploration Process - Policy Gradient
Keywords: Machine learning - Deep learning
Functional Description: Reinforcement Learning algorithm working with OpenAI Gym environments. A first phase implements exploration using a Goal Exploration Process (GEP). Samples collected during exploration are then transferred to the memory of a deep reinforcement learning algorithm (deep deterministic policy gradient or DDPG). DDPG then starts learning from a pre-initialized memory so as to maximize the sum of discounted rewards given by the environment.
