Reinforcement Learning for Mapping Instructions to Actions
In this paper, we present a reinforcement learning approach for mapping natural language instructions to sequences of executable actions. We assume access to a reward function tha...

Experts in a Markov Decision Process
We consider an MDP setting in which the reward function is allowed to change during each time step of play (possibly in an adversarial manner), yet the dynamics remain fixed. Simi...

A Game-Theoretic Approach to Apprenticeship Learning
We study the problem of an apprentice learning to behave in an environment with an unknown reward function by observing the behavior of an expert. We follow on the work of Abbeel ...

Robust Policy Computation in Reward-Uncertain MDPs Using Nondominated Policies
The precise specification of reward functions for Markov decision processes (MDPs) is often extremely difficult, motivating research into both reward elicitation and the robust so...

Authorial Idioms for Target Distributions in TTD-MDPs
In designing Markov Decision Processes (MDP), one must define the world, its dynamics, a set of actions, and a reward function. MDPs are often applied in situations where there i...

Learning behavior styles with inverse reinforcement learning
We present a method for inferring the behavior styles of character controllers from a small set of examples. We show that a rich set of behavior variations can be captured by dete...

Towards autonomous adaptive behavior in a bio-inspired CNN-controlled robot
— This paper describes a general approach for the unsupervised learning of behaviors in a behavior-based robot. The key idea is to formalize a behavior produced by a Motor Map dr...

Active Learning for Reward Estimation in Inverse Reinforcement Learning
Abstract. Inverse reinforcement learning addresses the general problem of recovering a reward function from samples of a policy provided by an expert/demonstrator. In this paper, w...

Q-Decomposition for Reinforcement Learning Agents
The paper explores a very simple agent design method called Q-decomposition, wherein a complex agent is built from simpler subagents. Each subagent has its own reward function and...
