Aravind Srinivas: New paper - CURL: Contrastive Unsupervised Representations for RL! We use the simplest form of contrastive learning (instance-based) as an auxiliary task in model-free RL. SoTA by *significant* margin on DMControl and Atari for data-efficiency. https://arxiv.org/abs/2004.04136 https://t.co/3ZSfzmxemE

hardmaru: Contrastive unsupervised features might be the ingredient that makes RL much more sample efficient. Nice results demonstrating the method for Atari and continuous control (from pixels) tasks.

Michael Laskin: Can pixel-based RL be as data-efficient as state-based RL? We show for the first time that the answer is yes, new work with @Aravind7694 and @pabbeel

Daisuke Okanohara: CURL performs unsupervised contrastive representation learning simultaneously with pixel-based off-policy RL training, which enables to reduce the required training samples significantly. Simple and very effective for data-efficient RL. https://arxiv.org/abs/2004.04136

Xander Steenbrugge: When applied to RL, these techniques yield vastly more sample-efficient agents, but are still quite far off human data efficiency...
The open question is how to learn generalizable priors that transfer across a wide range of environments & tasks!
