Abstract: We introduce a novel type of actor-critic approach for deep reinforcement learning which is based on learning vector quantization. We replace the softmax operator of the policy with a more general and more flexible operator that is similar to the robust soft learning vector quantization algorithm. We compare our approach to the default A3C architecture on three Atari 2600 games and a simplistic game called Catch. We show that the proposed algorithm outperforms the softmax architecture on Catch. On the Atari games, we observe a nonunanimous pattern in terms of the best performing model.
