Deep Neuroevolution experiments

This project collects a set of neuroevolution experiments with/towards deep networks for reinforcement learning control problems using an unsupervised learning feature exctactor.

Playing Atari with Six Neurons

The experiments for this paper are based on this code.
The algorithms themselves are coded in the

machine_learning_workbench
library, specifically using version 0.8.0.

Installation

First make sure the OpenAI Gym is pip-installed on python3, instructions here.
You will also need the GVGAI_GYM to access GVGAI environments.

Clone this repository, then execute:

$ bundle install

Usage

bundle exec ruby experiments/cartpole.rb
