[R] Better-than-Demonstrator Imitation Learning via Automatically-Ranked Demonstrations
While searching for papers about inverse reinforcement learning (IRL, learning rewards instead of policies), I found this:
It seems to be the only paper in which an agent manages to outperform the sub-optimal players it learns from.
I think this probably is an important step forward since eventually we would like to create programs that act in the real world and perform tasks better than us without having to code a reward function.
A short term application of this could be in self-driving cars, allowing them to learn from human drivers and be safer than them.
