Proof of Concept: Artificial Agent Learning to Program

At the end of 2018, a proof-of-concept combinatorial agent was trained on a demo problem.

  • It learns to write and launch a simple but useful program in a formal language
  • The probability of success approximates to 100% with the time
  • The proof-of-concept runs on a laptop PC using one core of a 1.6 GHz CPU
  • The whole training takes about 15 minutes and 10M of RAM
