Rogue We study many intresting properties in reinforcement learning in Rogue, including limited observation, exploration in maze, survival, and generalization. Kanagawa, Y. and T.

Half Field Offense

Half Field Offense
Reinforcement Learning in Half Field Offense Half field offense RoboCup 2D Soccer (HFO) is a subtask in RoboCup simulated soccer. Reinforcement learning in HFO is a challenging research topic. We developed hierarchical advantage and present HA-PPO to properly handle parameterized actions (e.g., turn (action) 30 degrees (parameter)) in PPO. The successful goal rate on one v.s. one task (agent v.s. the built-in goal keeper) is about 71% that is the best achieved by reinfoncement learning agents.

Reinforcement learning in games

In reinforcement learning (RL), agents improve their ability through interaction with an environment. The goal of RL in games is to make good agents without giving domain knowledge. AlphaZero is such an application of RL into games. Domains HFO Rogue, Catan, StarCraft II Option/skill Kanagawa, Y. and T.
