In this problem, a state of the environment at time-step t can be presented as a 4-tuple st = [xc,vc,αp,ωp]t, where xc denotes x-coordinate of the cart in Cartesian coordinate system Oxy, vc presents velocity of the cart along the track, αp presents the angle created by the pole and axis Oy, and ωp indicates the angular velocity of the pole around center I. Furthermore, Lample and Chaplot [52] successfully created an agent that can easily beat an average player on Doom, a 3D FPS (first-person shooter) environment by adding a game feature layer in DRQN. Mach Learn, 8(3–4):293–321. Osband I, Blundell C, Pritzel A, et al., 2016. share, Reinforcement learning (RL) has emerged as a standard approach for build... Although we can use dynamic programming to approximate the solutions of Bellman equations, it requires the complete dynamics information of the problem. The next step is to formalize the agent’s decision by defining a concept of policy. Centralized learning of decentralized policies has become a standard paradigm in multi-agent settings because the learning process may happen in a simulator and a laboratory where there are no communication constraints, and extra state information is available [48, 25]. In Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems (pp. Kalashnikov D, Irpan A, Pastor P, et al., 2018. created a target network τ′, parameterized by β′, which is updated in every N steps from estimation network τ. Therefore, equation (12) can be rewritten as: Although DQN basically solved a challenging problem in RL, the curse of dimensionality, this is just a rudimental step in solving completely real-world applications. Proc 35th Int Conf on Machine Learning, p.1587–1596., Article  [37] considered emergent behaviours, communication and cooperation learning perspectives, and Silva et al. Tan, M. (1993).

In such situations, the applications of multi-agent systems (MAS) are indispensable. Human-level control through deep reinforcement learning. The goal of the agent is to learn a policy ππ that maximizes the expected return (cumulative, discounted reward). Multi-agent deep reinforcement learning for zero energy communities. 2613-2621). Kilinc and Montana [41] introduced a MADRL method that combines the deterministic policy gradient algorithm and a communication medium to address these circumstances. The interactions among multiple agents constantly reshape the environment and lead to non-stationarity. Wang, Hn., Liu, N., Zhang, Yy. This limits the algorithms to work with problems where the current state depends on a significant amount of history information such as Double Dunk or Frostbite.

Deep learning uses multi-layer neural networks to learn a problem in different levels of abstraction. Remind that the agent receives a feedback reward rt+1 for every time-step t until it reaches the terminal state sT. Mulling, K., Kober, J., Kroemer, O., and Peters, J. However, this approach has made two essential assumptions to ensure the convergence happens: 1) the number of episodes is large and 2) every state and every action must be visited with a significant number of times. The most common drawback of deep RL models however is the ability to interact with human through human-machine teaming technologies. In the next subsection, we will review two model-free RL methods (requires no knowledge of transition probabilities p(ai|s)) to approximate the value function. This method however requires a sufficient level of similarity between source and target tasks and is vulnerable to negative transfer. Therefore, the policy π must be stochastic or soft. The idea indeed can be generalized to any stochastic policy π. System design perspective for human-level agents using deep reinforcement learning: a survey.
