First Published: Feb 2021

RL algorithms are a nightmare to get working, below are some of my notes on how to get them to run effectively -

Real Robots / Sim2Real

I only have limited experience with transferring RL algorithms to real robots, however I have worked with Other Algorithms™ (yes, I know, they do exist) a fair bit on real robots, so some of these tips will generalise:
