Ingredients for Robotics Research
We're releasing eight simulated robotics environments and a Baselines implementation of Hindsight Experience Replay, all developed for our research over the past year. We've used these environments to train models which work on physical robots.
Generalizing from Simulation
Better Exploration with Parameter Noise
We've found that adding adaptive noise to the parameters of reinforcement learning algorithms frequently boosts performance. This exploration method is simple to implement and very rarely decreases performance, so it's worth trying on any problem.
Robots that Learn
We've created a robotics system, trained entirely in simulation and deployed on a physical robot, which can learn a new task after seeing it done once.
