Detailed Description


class mlpack::rl::GreedyPolicy< EnvironmentType >

Implementation for epsilon greedy policy.

In general we will select an action greedily based on the action value, however sometimes we will also randomly select an action to encourage exploration.

Template Parameters
EnvironmentTypeThe reinforcement learning task.

◆ ActionType

using ActionType = typename EnvironmentType::Action

Convenient typedef for action.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ GreedyPolicy()

GreedyPolicy ( const double  initialEpsilon,
const size_t  annealInterval,
const double  minEpsilon,
const double  decayRate = 1.0 

Constructor for epsilon greedy policy class.

initialEpsilonThe initial probability to explore (select a random action).
annealIntervalThe steps during which the probability to explore will anneal.
minEpsilonEpsilon will never be less than this value.
decayRateHow much to change the model in response to the estimated error each time the model weights are updated.

Definition at line 48 of file greedy_policy.hpp.

Member Function Documentation

◆ Anneal()

void Anneal ( )

Exploration probability will anneal at each step.

Definition at line 80 of file greedy_policy.hpp.

◆ Epsilon()

const double& Epsilon ( ) const
Current possibility to explore.

Definition at line 89 of file greedy_policy.hpp.

◆ Sample()

ActionType Sample ( const arma::colvec &  actionValue,
bool  deterministic = false 

Sample an action based on given action values.

actionValueValues for each action.
deterministicAlways select the action greedily.
Sampled action.
