The 37 Implementation Details of Proximal Policy Optimization

Proximal policy optimization (PPO) has become one of the most popular deep reinforcement learning (DRL) algorithms. Yet, reproducing the PPO's results has been challenging in the community. While recent works conducted ablation studies to provide …

Stable-Baselines3: Reliable Reinforcement Learning Implementations

Stable-Baselines3 provides open-source implementations of deep reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms in Python. The implementations have been benchmarked against reference codebases, and automated unit tests cover 95% of the code. The algorithms …

Smooth Exploration for Robotic Reinforcement Learning

We extend the original state-dependent exploration (SDE) to apply deep reinforcement learning algorithms directly on real robots. The resulting method, gSDE, yields competitive results in simulation but outperforms the unstructured exploration on the real robot.
