Adversarial Option-Aware Hierarchical Imitation Learning

1 code implementation10 Jun 2021 Mingxuan Jing, Wenbing Huang, Fuchun Sun, Xiaojian Ma, Tao Kong, Chuang Gan, Lei LI

In particular, we propose an Expectation-Maximization(EM)-style algorithm: an E-step that samples the options of expert conditioned on the current learned policy, and an M-step that updates the low- and high-level policies of agent simultaneously to minimize the newly proposed option-occupancy measurement between the expert and the agent.
