ChainerRL is a deep reinforcement learning library that implements various state-of-the-art deep reinforcement algorithms in Python using Chainer, a flexible deep learning framework.
ChainerRL is tested with Python 2.7+ and 3.5.1+. For other requirements, see requirements.txt.
ChainerRL can be installed via PyPI:
pip install chainerrl
It can also be installed from the source code:
python setup.py install
Refer to Installation for more information on installation.
For more information, you can refer to ChainerRL's documentation.

Following algorithms have been implemented in ChainerRL:
- A3C (Asynchronous Advantage Actor-Critic)
- ACER (Actor-Critic with Experience Replay)
- Asynchronous N-step Q-learning
- Categorical DQN
- DQN (including Double DQN, Persistent Advantage Learning (PAL), Double PAL, Dynamic Policy Programming (DPP))
- DDPG (Deep Deterministic Policy Gradients) (including SVG(0))
- PGT (Policy Gradient Theorem)
- PCL (Path Consistency Learning)
- PPO (Proximal Policy Optimization)

ChainerRL has a set of accompanying visualization tools in order to aid developers' ability to understand and debug their RL agents. With this visualization tool, the behavior of ChainerRL agents can be easily inspected from a browser UI.
Environments that support the subset of OpenAI Gym's interface (
step methods) can be used.
