Automatically Generating Reinforcement Learning Algorithms

Can be expected that many current machine learning techniques will move towards automation.  Papers mentioned are worth looking at.

DeepMind’s AI automatically generates reinforcement learning algorithms
Kyle Wiggers in VentureBeat

 In a study  published on the preprint server Arxiv.org, DeepMind researchers describe a reinforcement learning  algorithm-generating technique that discovers what to predict and how to learn it by interacting with environments. They claim the generated algorithms perform well on a range of challenging Atari video games, achieving “non-trivial” performance indicative of the technique’s generalizability.

Reinforcement learning algorithms — algorithms that enable software agents to learn in environments by trial and error using feedback — update an agent’s parameters according to one of several rules. These rules are usually discovered through years of research, and automating their discovery from data could lead to more efficient algorithms, or algorithms better adapted to specific environments.  ...
