Benefits of modular approach – generalization

August 09, 2020 ResearchTechnical blogs

One of the properties of the Badger architecture is modularity: instead of using one big neural network, the Badger should be composed of many small Experts which solve the whole task in a collaborative manner.

Trainability of Badger – Why is Badger so hard to train?

To understand why Badger is hard to train, we need to understand first how Badger learns, using a toy task. We try to understand the plateaus, what happens during this period, and why the plateaus are there.

GoodAI’s ToyArchitecture published in PLOS ONE

Research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has focused mostly on two extremes: either on small improvements in narrow AI domains, or on universal theoretical frameworks which are often uncomputable, or lack practical implementations.

Distributed Evolutionary Computation on Deep Reinforcement Learning Tasks

April 30, 2020 ResearchTechnical blogs

Currently, we are experimenting with an experimental setup proposed in our Badger paper. One of the areas of explorations is an evaluation of suitability of various training settings: supervised learning, Deep Reinforcement Learning (RL), and evolutionary optimization.

Neural Networks in Unity using Native Libraries

March 11, 2020 ResearchTechnical blogs

This guide shows how to use Pytorch’s C++ API to use neural networks in Unity. We can use this with existing Python-based models, by freezing the execution trace into a binary file that is loaded by the library at runtime.

Implementation of Generative Teaching Networks for PyTorch

March 11, 2020 ResearchTechnical blogs

At GoodAI, we’re interested in multi-agent architectures that can learn to rapidly adapt to new and unseen environments we expect the behavior and adaptation to be learned through communication of homogeneous units inside a single agent, allowing for better generalization.

Task Representation for Badger

February 26, 2020 ResearchTechnical blogs

The idea of the Badger architecture is to make a learning agent with increased generality by virtue of allowing task-specific learning to occur in the activations of an extensible pool of ‘experts’ who all share the same weights.

Animal-AI Olympics results

January 23, 2020 Research

GoodAI was proud to support the Animal-AI Olympics which was organized by the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, Imperial College London, and the University of Cambridge. The project aimed to benchmark AI agents against multiple animal species.
