The bonus is the error of a neural network predicting features of the observations given by a fixed randomly initialized neural network. We also introduce a method to flexibly combine intrinsic and extrinsic rewards. In particular we establish state of the art performance on Montezuma's Revenge, a game famously difficult for deep reinforcement learning methods.
