  title={Successor Features for Transfer in Reinforcement Learning},
  author={Andr{\'e} Barreto and R{\'e}mi Munos and Tom Schaul and David Silver},
Transfer in reinforcement learning refers to the notion that generalization should occur not only within a task but also across tasks. We propose a transfer framework for the scenario where the reward function changes between tasks but the environment’s dynamics remain the same. Our approach rests on two key ideas: successor features, a value function representation that decouples the dynamics of the environment from the rewards, and generalized policy improvement, a generalization of dynamic… CONTINUE READING
