2014 Best Oral Presentation
and Paper at SMC 2014
The paper "Multiple Model Q-Learning for Stochastic Reinforcement
Delays" by Jeffrey S. Campbell,
Sidney N. Givigi, and Howard M.
Schwartz won the award for best
oral presentation and paper. The
main contribution of this article is a
novel machine reinforcement learning algorithm for problems where a
Poissonian stochastic time delay is
present in the agent's reinforcement
signal. Despite the presence of the
reinforcement noise, the algorithm
can craft a suitable control policy for
the agent's environment. The novel
approach can deal with reinforcements that may be received out of
order in time or may even overlap,
which was not previously considered in the literature. The proposed
algorithm is simulated and its performance is compared with a standard Q-learning algorithm. Through
simulation, the proposed method is
found to improve the performance of
