Data-efficient Co-Adaptation of Morphology and Behaviour with Deep Reinforcement Learning

Humans and animals are capable of quickly learning new behaviours to solve new tasks. Yet, we often forget that they also rely on a highly specialized morphology that co-adapted with motor control throughout thousands of years. Although…
