Multi-Agent/Robot Deep Reinforcement Learning with Macro-Actions (Student Abstract)
We consider the challenges of learning multi-agent/robot macro-action-based deep Q-nets including how to properly update each macro-action value and accurately maintain macro-action-observation trajectories. We address these challenges by first proposing two fundamental frameworks for learning macro-action-value function and joint macro-action-value function. Furthermore, we present two new approaches of learning decentralized macro-action-based policies, which involve a new double Q-update rule that facilitates the learning of decentralized Q-nets by using a centralized Q-net for action selection. Our approaches are evaluated both in simulation and on real robots.
