Special Issue on
Deep Reinforcement Learning and Games
Aims and Scope
Recently, there has been tremendous progress in artificial intelligence (AI) and computational intelligence (CI) and games. In 2015, Google DeepMind published a paper “Human-level control through deep reinforcement learning” in Nature, showing the power of AI&CI in learning to play Atari video games directly from the screen capture. Furthermore, in Nature 2016, it published a cover paper “Mastering the game of Go with deep neural networks and tree search” and proposed the computer Go program, AlphaGo. In March 2016, AlphaGo beat the world’s top Go player Lee Sedol by 4:1. In early 2017, the Master, a variant of AlphaGo, won 60 matches against top Go players. In late 2017, AlphaGo Zero learned only from self-play and was able to beat the original AlphaGo without any losses (Nature 2017). This becomes a new milestone in the AI&CI history, the core of which is the algorithm of deep reinforcement learning (DRL). Moreover, the achievements on DRL and games are manifest. In 2017, the AIs beat the expert in Texas Hold’em poker (Science 2017). OpenAI developed an AI to outperform the champion in the 1V1 Dota 2 game. Facebook released a huge database of StarCraft I. Blizzard and DeepMind turned StarCraft II into an AI research lab with a more open interface. In these games, DRL also plays an important role.
Needless to say, the great achievements of DRL are first obtained in the domain of games, and it is timely to report major advances in a special issue of IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine. IEEE Trans. on Neural network and Learning Systems and IEEE Trans. on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games have organized similar ones in 2017.
DRL is able to output control signals directly based on input images, and integrates the capacity for perception of deep learning (DL) and the decision making of reinforcement learning (RL). This mechanism has many similarities to human modes of thinking. However, there is much work left to do. The theoretical analysis of DRL, e. g., the convergence, stability, and optimality, is still in early days. Learning efficiency needs to be improved by proposing new algorithms or combining with other methods. DRL algorithms still need to be demonstrated in more diverse practical settings. Therefore, the aim of this special issue is to publish the most advanced research and state-of-the-art contributions in the field of DRL and its application in games. We expect this special issue to provide a platform for international researchers to exchange ideas and to present their latest research in relevant topics. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:
· Survey on DRL and games;
· New AI&CI algorithms in games;
· New algorithms of DL, RL and DRL;
· Theoretical foundation of DL, RL and DRL;
· DRL combined with search algorithms or other learning methods;
· Challenges of AI&CI games as limitations in strategy learning, etc.;
· DRL or AI&CI Games based applications in realistic and complicated systems.
