WarpDrive v2 Release Supports Numba to Simplify Machine Learning Workloads and Make Building Simulations Easier on NVIDIA GPUs

TL;DR: Deep reinforcement learning (RL), a powerful learning framework to train AI agents, can be slow as it requires repeated interaction with a simulation of the environment. Our original WarpDrive accelerates multi-agent deep RL on NVIDIA GPUs, enabling 10-100x speedups compared to alternative CPU+GPU implementations of multi-agent simulations.

Science Advances Publishes AI Economist Research on Improving Tax Policies With Reinforcement Learning

TL;DR: The AI Economist, a reinforcement learning (RL) system, learns dynamic tax policies that optimize equality along with productivity in simulated economies, outperforming alternative tax systems. We have now expanded this research, which is being published in the interdisciplinary scientific journal Science Advances. Humans or AI: Which Can Design
