Most existing domain adaptation (DA) methods aim to explore favorable performance under complicated environments by sampling. However, there are three unsolved problems that limit their efficiencies: i) they adopt global sampling but neglect to exploit global and local sampling simultaneously; ii) they either transfer knowledge from a global perspective or...

Goal-conditioned reinforcement learning (RL) is an interesting extension of the traditional RL framework, where the dynamic environment and reward sparsity can cause conventional learning algorithms to fail. Reward shaping is a practical approach to improving sample efficiency by embedding human domain knowledge into the learning process. Existing reward shaping methods...

Plants sequester carbon through photosynthesis and provide primary productivity for the ecosystem. However, they also simultaneously consume water through transpiration, leading to a carbon-water balance relationship. Agricultural production can be regarded as a form of carbon sequestration behavior. From the perspective of the natural-social-economic complex ecosystem, excessive water usage in...

With the maturation of autonomous driving technology, the use of autonomous vehicles in a socially acceptable manner has become a growing demand of the public. Human-like autonomous driving is expected due to the impact of the differences between autonomous vehicles and human drivers on safety. Although human-like decision-making has become...

This paper is concerned with a novel integrated multi-step heuristic dynamic programming (MsHDP) algorithm for solving optimal control problems. It is shown that, initialized by the zero cost function, MsHDP can converge to the optimal solution of the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation. Then, the stability of the system is analyzed using...
