Predictive neural networks for reinforcement learning
By Lukasz Burzawa, Abhishek Chaurasia and Eugenio Culurciello
We used predictive neural network like CortexNet to show that they can speed up reinforcement learning. We used VizDoom rocket basic scenario.
We collected videos of 500 episodes of human game play, and we pre-trained a predictive neural network on those videos.
