An Optimistic Perspective on Offline Reinforcement Learning.
Off-policy learning is of interest because it forms the basis for popular reinforcement learning methods such as Q-learning, which has been known to diverge with linear function approximation, and because it is critical to the practical utility of multi-scale, multi-goal, learning frameworks such as options, HAMs, and MAXQ. Our new algorithm combines TD(lambda) over state-action pairs with.
The proposed offline setting for evaluating off-policy RL algorithms is much closer to supervised learning and simpler than the typical online setting. For example, in the offline setting, we optimize a training objective over a fixed dataset as compared to the non-stationary objective over a changing experience replay buffer for an online off-policy RL algorithm. This simplicity allows us to.
The properties of model predictive control and reinforcement learning are compared in Table 1. odel predictive control is model-based, is not adaptive, and has a high online complexity, but also has a mature stability, feasibility and robustness theory as well as an in- herent constraint handling. In recent years adaptive model predictive control has been studied for providing adaptiv- ity.
Offline (solving MDPs) Vs. Online (RL) Offline planing. Given the MDP, you plan offline, than means, you find the optimal policy taking actions in a simulated environment. You get the optimal policy through the optimal values of the states, by value iteration or policy iteration. You only interact with the real environment when you already have.

In offline reinforcement learning (RL), the goal is to learn a successful policy using only a dataset of historical interactions with the environment, without any additional online interactions. This serves as an extreme test for an agent's ability to effectively use historical data, which is critical for efficient RL. Prior work in offline RL has been confined almost exclusively to model-free.
