  • Self-supervised methods, wherein an agent learns representations solely by observing the results of its actions, become crucial in environments which do not provide a dense reward signal or have labels. In most cases, such methods are used for pretraining or auxiliary tasks for "downstream" tasks, such as control, exploration, or imitation learning. However, it is not clear which method's representations best capture meaningful features of the environment, and which are best suited for which… CONTINUE READING
