Examining Extended Dynamic Scripting in a Tactical Game Framework
Dynamic scripting is a reinforcement learning algorithm designed specifically to learn appropriate tactics for an agent in a modern computer game, such as Neverwinter Nights. This...

Approximate Planning in POMDPs with Macro-Actions
Recent research has demonstrated that useful POMDP solutions do not require consideration of the entire belief space. We extend this idea with the notion of temporal abstraction. ...

R-MAX - A General Polynomial Time Algorithm for Near-Optimal Reinforcement Learning
R-max is a very simple model-based reinforcement learning algorithm which can attain near-optimal average reward in polynomial time. In R-max, the agent always maintains a complet...

General Principles of Learning-Based Multi-Agent Systems
We consider the problem of how to design large decentralized multiagent systems (MAS’s) in an automated fashion, with little or no hand-tuning. Our approach has each agent run a...
