9 More stable value-based methods
In this chapter
- You will improve on the methods you learned in the previous chapter by making them more stable and therefore less prone to divergence.
- You will explore advanced value-based deep reinforcement learning methods, and the many components that make value-based methods better.
- You will solve the cart-pole environment in a fewer number of samples, and with more reliable and consistent results.
Let thy step be slow and steady, that thou stumble not.

In the last chapter, you learned about value-based deep reinforcement learning. NFQ, the algorithm we developed, is a simple solution ...
