Function shaping in deep learning
Ēvalds Urtāns, Riga Technical University, Latvia
This work describes the importance of loss functions and related methods for deep reinforcement learning and deep metric learning. A novel MDQN loss function outperformed DDQN loss function in PLE computer game environments, and a novel Exponential Triplet loss function outperformed the Triplet loss function in the face re-identification task with VGGFace2 dataset reaching 85,7 % accuracy using zero-shot setting. This work also presents a novel UNet-RNN-Skip model to improve the performance of the value function for path planning tasks.
