OpenAI Baselines: DQN

July 05, 2017

OpenAI Baselines: DQN
https://blog.openai.com/openai-baselines-dqn/

They are open-sourcing OpenAI Baselines, their internal effort to reproduce reinforcement learning algorithms with performance on par with published results. They will release the algorithms over upcoming months; today’s release includes DQN and three of its variants. Reinforcement learning results are tricky to reproduce: performance is very noisy, algorithms have many moving parts which allow for subtle bugs, and many papers don’t report all the required tricks. By releasing known-good implementations (and best practices for creating them), they would like to ensure that apparent RL advances never are due to comparison with buggy or untuned versions of existing algorithms. RL algorithms are challenging to implement correctly; good results typically only come after fixing many seemingly-trivial bugs. This post contains some best practices they use for correct RL algorithm implementations, as well as the details of our first release: DQN and three of its variants, algorithms developed by DeepMind. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Open Broadcaster Studio

Open Broadcaster Studio
https://obsproject.com

It can be a surprisingly difficult task to record and stream video over the internet. Users must often assemble a pipeline of several different tools that each handle a different aspect of the production process. Open Broadcaster Studio wraps the entire process into a single, simple to use application. It can be used to pre-record video content, but it truly shines as a tool for live streaming. Multiple popular streaming services are supported including YouTube and Facebook Live. It can perform real time video and audio mixing, audio filtering (e.g. noise suppression), video filtering (e.g. color correction), custom transitions between scenes, and more. Extensive documentation is available on its website, including step-by-step guides with detailed instructions and screenshots. Users may also seek assistance via the very active Open Broadcaster Software forums or via live community chat. Open Broadcaster Studio is available for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux computers. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
