Thursday, 22nd August at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by Reinforcement Learning Community in August 2019

Genetic Programming for RL on Minecraft

This talk with focus on Tangled Program Graphs playing Minecraft. TPGs are a form of genetic programming that has had recent success in visual RL tasks such as ALE, Dota2 and VizDoom. TPGs offer an number of advantages over deep learning techniques:

1) They can learn to play multiple games at the same time and efficiently reuse elements of their graph structure across all games

2) They require a fraction of the computational resource - No GPUs required!

Come to the talk to learn about TPGs, genetic programming and see an implementation of TPG learning to play Minecraft,
