8+ Reinforcement Learning Project Ideas

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • GitHub repo gym

    A toolkit for developing and comparing reinforcement learning algorithms.

    OpenAI Gym has become the de facto standard for reinforcement learning frameworks among researchers and practitioners. Solving toy problems from the gym library will help familiarize you with this popular framework. Good starting points include Cartpole, Lunar Lander and Taxi.

  • GitHub repo Bullet

    Bullet Physics SDK: real-time collision detection and multi-physics simulation for VR, games, visual effects, robotics, machine learning etc.

    Gym provides a library of continuous physics simulations in the form of its MuJoCo environments. Since MuJoCo requires a paid license, I recommend checking out PyBullet as a free open-source alternative. Using PyBullet/MuJoCo, you can teach a variety of robots to walk, run, or swim.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo ml-agents

    Unity Machine Learning Agents Toolkit

    Unity ML-Agents is a relatively new add-on to the Unity game engine. It allows game developers to train intelligent NPCs for games and enables researchers to create graphics- and physics-rich RL environments. Project ideas to explore include:

  • GitHub repo AirSim

    Open source simulator for autonomous vehicles built on Unreal Engine / Unity, from Microsoft AI & Research


  • GitHub repo carla

    Open-source simulator for autonomous driving research.


  • GitHub repo open_spiel

    OpenSpiel is a collection of environments and algorithms for research in general reinforcement learning and search/planning in games.

    8. Build a Chess Bot with OpenSpiel

  • GitHub repo tensortrade

    An open source reinforcement learning framework for training, evaluating, and deploying robust trading agents.

    Predict stock prices with TensorTrade

  • SonarLint

    Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!. SonarLint is a free and open source IDE extension that identifies and catches bugs and vulnerabilities as you code, directly in the IDE. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • GitHub repo rlcard

    Reinforcement Learning / AI Bots in Card (Poker) Games - Blackjack, Leduc, Texas, DouDizhu, Mahjong, UNO.
