PD-MORL: Preference-Driven Multi-Objective Reinforcement Learning Algorithm. (arXiv:2208.07914v1 [cs.LG])

Many real-world problems involve multiple, possibly conflicting, objectives.
Multi-objective reinforcement learning (MORL) approaches have emerged to tackle
these problems by maximizing a joint objective function weighted by a
preference vector. These approaches find fixed customized policies
corresponding to preference vectors specified during training. However, the
design constraints and objectives typically change dynamically in real-life
scenarios. Furthermore, storing a policy for each potential preference is not
scalable. Hence, obtaining a set of Pareto front solutions for the entire
preference space in a given domain with a single training is critical. To this
end, we propose a novel MORL algorithm that trains a single universal network
to cover the entire preference space. The proposed approach, Preference-Driven
MORL (PD-MORL), utilizes the preferences as guidance to update the network
parameters. After demonstrating PD-MORL using classical Deep Sea Treasure and
Fruit Tree Navigation benchmarks, we evaluate its performance on challenging
multi-objective continuous control tasks.
