Functional Description: Until recently, curiosity driven exploration algorithms were based on classic learning algorithms, unable to handle large dimensional problems (see explauto). Recent advances in the field of deep learning offer new algorithms able to handle such situations.
Deep explauto is an experimental library, containing reference implementations of curiosity driven exploration algorithms. Given the experimental aspect of exploration algorithms, and the low maturity of the libraries and algorithms using deep learning, proposing black-box implementations of those algorithms, enabling a blind use of those, seem unrealistic.
Nevertheless, in order to quickly launch new experiments, this library offers an set of objects, functions and examples, allowing to kickstart new experiments.
