Temporal Coherence and Prediction Decay in TD Learning
TLDR
This paper describes improvements to the temporal difference TD(λ) learning method, which leads to better learning (i.e. faster and less subject to the effects of noise) than the standard form. Expand

Temporal Difference Learning for Heuristic Search and Game Playing
TLDR
We show that temporal coherence produces faster learning than earlier methods, and that TD learning can produce values that are superior to standard values for specified search regimes without any domain-specific information or human assistance. Expand
