Nan Jiang takes us deep into Model-based vs Model-free RL, Sim vs Real, Evaluation & Overfitting, RL Theory vs Practice and much more!
Nan Jiang is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at University of Illinois. He was a Postdoc Microsoft Research, and did his PhD at University of Michigan under Professor Satinder Singh.

- [Robin] I misspoke when I said in domain randomization we want the agent to "ignore" domain parameters. What I should have said is, we want the agent to perform well within some range of domain parameters, it should be robust with respect to domain parameters.
