Finally, Transformers working for RL! Two simple modifications: move layer-norm and add gating creates GTrXL: an incredibly stable and effective architecture for integrating experience through time in RL. Great work from Emilio interning at @DeepMindAI

Really excited about our latest work showing that large Transformer-XLs can be used in RL agents. We show SoTA performance on DMLab with gated transformers and a few small changes. Led by Emilio as an internship project! @DeepMindAI

Using large Transformer-XLs for stable training of RL agents. Nice work from Emilio Parisotto’s internship and colleagues at DeepMind.

Transformers now also taking over SOTA from LSTMs in the Reinforcement Learning domain! 🤯😁 Very curious to see this applied to long time-horizon environments like StarCraft, Dota II and more. @SchmidhuberAI is not going to like this 🤣

We have shown that it is possible to train very large transformers on RL problems by introducing gating mechanism to stabilize them. It turned out this architecture is very effective on a number of RL benchmarks. As @maxjaderberg pointed out,mostly due to the work done by Emilio.

For memory-augmented RL, the agent with gated transformer-XL (GTrXL) achieves better performance than one with LSTM. Introduced gate (GRU) significantly stabilizes the training by enabling a Markov regime of training at the beginning.
