Image as input Reinforcement learning has various problems, such as poor data efficiency and lack of versatility. In this article, we introduce a paper called Reinforcement Learning with Augmented Data (RAD), which improves learning efficiency by performing augmentation on input images. Although it is often used and the method is very simple, it has been found to be effective in augmenting previously unused images and has successfully improved the efficiency of training many RL algorithms.

Here's how we've increased learning efficiency, and versatility when testing.
