Clarity regarding time interval


#1

In submission documentation it has been given that all tests will have length either 250, 500 or 1000 but in sample training files lengths are 100, 250, 1000. Aren’t both of them supposed to be same?

Hello!

the sample training files are just meant to be examples for how you can train the agent provided as examples in animalai-train out of the box, and what objects each category might contain (see the documentation for more details.
Therefore, no the time limits for each category are not the ones present in the sample configuration files.

Each of the 300 tests can have a maximum length of 250, 500 or 1000 steps. These values are not category dependent. Before each episode starts we call the reset function which takes the maximum number of steps t as a parameter in case you need to use it in your model.
