Reinforcement learning should be fast, safe and easy to use.


rsrl provides generic constructs for reinforcement learning (RL) experiments in an extensible framework with efficient implementations of existing methods for rapid prototyping.


rsrl = "0.8"

Note that rsrl enables the blas feature of its ndarray dependency, so if you're building a binary, you additionally need to specify a BLAS backend compatible with ndarray. For example, you can add these dependencies:

blas-src = { version = "0.2.0", default-features = false, features = ["openblas"] }
openblas-src = { version = "0.6.0", default-features = false, features = ["cblas", "system"] }

See ndarray's README for more information.


The code below shows how one could use rsrl to evaluate a QLearning agent using a linear function approximator with Fourier basis projection to solve the canonical mountain car problem.

See examples/ for more...

let env = MountainCar::default();
let n_actions = env.action_space().card().into();

let mut rng = StdRng::seed_from_u64(0);
let (mut ql, policy) = {
    let basis = Fourier::from_space(5, env.state_space()).with_bias();
    let q_func = make_shared(LFA::vector(basis, SGD(0.001), n_actions));
    let policy = Greedy::new(q_func.clone());

    (QLearning {
        gamma: 0.9,
    }, policy)

for e in 0..200 {
    // Episode loop:
    let mut j = 0;
    let mut env = MountainCar::default();
    let mut action = policy.sample(&mut rng, env.emit().state());

    for i in 0.. {
        // Trajectory loop:
        j = i;

        let t = env.transition(action);

        action = policy.sample(&mut rng,;

        if t.terminated() {

    println!("Batch {}: {} steps...", e + 1, j + 1);

let traj = MountainCar::default().rollout(|s| policy.mode(s), Some(500));

println!("OOS: {} states...", traj.n_states());
