Create deep Q-network reinforcement learning agent


agent = rlDQNAgent(critic,opt)



agent = rlDQNAgent(critic,opt) creates a DQN agent with the specified critic network and DQN agent options. For more information on DQN agents, see Deep Q-Network Agents.

Create an environment interface and obtain its observation and action specifications.

env = rlPredefinedEnv("CartPole-Discrete");
obsInfo = getObservationInfo(env);
actInfo = getActionInfo(env);

Create a critic representation.

statePath = [
    imageInputLayer([4 1 1], 'Normalization', 'none', 'Name', 'state')
    fullyConnectedLayer(24, 'Name', 'CriticStateFC1')
    reluLayer('Name', 'CriticRelu1')
    fullyConnectedLayer(24, 'Name', 'CriticStateFC2')];
actionPath = [
    imageInputLayer([1 1 1], 'Normalization', 'none', 'Name', 'action')
    fullyConnectedLayer(24, 'Name', 'CriticActionFC1')];
commonPath = [
    additionLayer(2,'Name', 'add')
    fullyConnectedLayer(1, 'Name', 'output')];
criticNetwork = layerGraph(statePath);
criticNetwork = addLayers(criticNetwork, actionPath);
criticNetwork = addLayers(criticNetwork, commonPath);    
criticNetwork = connectLayers(criticNetwork,'CriticStateFC2','add/in1');
criticNetwork = connectLayers(criticNetwork,'CriticActionFC1','add/in2');
criticOpts = rlRepresentationOptions('LearnRate',0.01,'GradientThreshold',1);
critic = rlRepresentation(criticNetwork,obsInfo,actInfo,...

Specify agent options, and create a DQN agent using the environment and critic.

agentOpts = rlDQNAgentOptions(...
    'UseDoubleDQN',false, ...    
    'TargetUpdateMethod',"periodic", ...
    'TargetUpdateFrequency',4, ...   
    'ExperienceBufferLength',100000, ...
    'DiscountFactor',0.99, ...
agent = rlDQNAgent(critic,agentOpts);
