Learning to Act in Continuous Dec-POMDPs

Abstract : We address a long-standing open problem of reinforcement learning in continuous decentralized partially observable Markov decision processes. Previous attempts focused on different forms of generalized policy iteration, which at best led to local optima. In this paper, we restrict attention to plans, which are simpler to store and update than policies. We derive, under mild conditions, the first optimal cooperative multi-agent reinforcement learning algorithm. To achieve significant scalability gains, we replace the greedy maximization by mixed-integer linear programming. Experiments show our approach can learn to act optimally in many finite domains from the literature.
