Discovering a set of policies for the worst case reward [article]

Tom Zahavy, Andre Barreto, Daniel J Mankowitz, Shaobo Hou, Brendan O'Donoghue, Iurii Kemaev, Satinder Singh
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Our main contribution is a policy iteration algorithm that builds a set of policies in order to maximize the worst-case performance of the resulting SMP on the set of tasks.  ...  We show that the worst-case performance of the resulting SMP strictly improves at each iteration, and the algorithm only stops when there does not exist a policy that leads to improved performance.  ...  For the special case where the SFs associated with any policy are in the simplex, the value of the SMP w.r.t the worst case reward for any set of policies is less than or equal to −1/ √ d.  ...

Clinician-in-the-Loop Decision Making: Reinforcement Learning with Near-Optimal Set-Valued Policies [article]

Shengpu Tang, Aditya Modi, Michael W. Sjoding, Jenna Wiens
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We consider an alternative objective -- learning set-valued policies to capture near-equivalent actions that lead to similar cumulative rewards.  ...  However, in healthcare settings, many actions may be near-equivalent with respect to the reward (e.g., survival).  ...  The views and conclusions in this document are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as necessarily representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of the National Science  ...

Adaptive Routing with Guaranteed Delay Bounds using Safe Reinforcement Learning

Gautham Nayak Seetanadi, Karl-Erik Årzén, Martina Maggio
2020 Proceedings of the 28th International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems  
For known typical and worst-case delays, an algorithm was presented to (statically) determine the policy to be followed during the packet transmission in terms of edge choices.  ...  In this paper we relax the assumption of knowing the typical delay, and we assume only worst-case bounds are available.  ...  A similar methodology of restricting exploration space is to have a finite set of demonstrations to discover the state space.  ...

Learning Adversarially Robust Policies in Multi-Agent Games [article]

Eric Zhao, Alexander R. Trott, Caiming Xiong, Stephan Zheng
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Predicting the worst-case outcome of a policy is thus an equilibrium selection problem -- one known to be generally NP-Hard.  ...  We show that worst-case coarse-correlated equilibria can be efficiently approximated in smooth games and propose a framework that uses the worst-case evaluation scheme to learn robust player policies.  ...  Sampling worst-case members of -CCEs is not significantly harder than sampling worst-case members of strict CCEs (as guaranteed by Theorem 1).  ...

A Short Survey on Probabilistic Reinforcement Learning [article]

Reazul Hasan Russel
2019 arXiv   pre-print
It is important for the agent to explore suboptimal actions as well as to pick actions with highest known rewards.  ...  In this paper, we present a brief survey of methods available in the literature for balancing exploration-exploitation trade off and computing robust solutions from fixed samples in reinforcement learning  ...  The worst-case total expected reward under any policy π over this ambiguity set then provides a valid lower bound on the expected total reward with the confidence at least 1 − δ.  ...

In the first stage, we train a deceptive policy by hacking the environment, and discover a set of trajectories routing to the lowest reward or the worst-case performance.  ...  Despite the efficiency of previous optimization-based methods for generating adversarial noise in supervised learning, such methods might not be able to achieve the lowest cumulative reward since they  ...  To address this issue, we first introduce a deceptive policy to explore the worst case in the environment that can minimize the accumulated reward.  ...
