Etymo Trending

Presented below is a list of the most trending papers added in the last two weeks.

  • Large Scale Adversarial Representation Learning:
    The authors show that progress in image generation quality translates to substantially improved representation learning performance. Their approach, BigBiGAN, builds upon the state-of-the-art BigGAN model, extending it to representation learning by adding an encoder and modifying the discriminator.

  • Modern Deep Reinforcement Learning Algorithms:
    This is a review paper that reviews DRL algorithms with a focus on their theoretical justification, practical limitations and observed empirical properties.

  • Benchmarking Model-Based Reinforcement Learning:
    This paper a wide collection of Model-Based Reinforcement Learning (MBRL) algorithms and propose over 18 benchmarking environments specially designed for MBRL. The authors benchmark these algorithms with unified problem settings, including noisy environments. The open source benchmark can be found here.
