Alchemy: A structured task distribution for meta-reinforcement learning

There has been rapidly growing interest in developing methods for meta-learning within deep RL. Although there has been substantive progress toward such ‘meta-reinforcement learning,’ research in this area has been held back by a shortage of benchmark tasks. In the present work, we aim to ease this problem by introducing (and open-sourcing) Alchemy, a useful new benchmark environment for meta-RL, along with a suite of analysis tools.Read More
