Addressing Function Approximation Error in Actor-Critic Methods

ICML 2018 Scott FujimotoHerke van HoofDavid Meger

In value-based reinforcement learning methods such as deep Q-learning, function approximation errors are known to lead to overestimated value estimates and suboptimal policies. We show that this problem persists in an actor-critic setting and propose novel mechanisms to minimize its effects on both the actor and the critic... (read more)
