Generative AI with LLMs: RLHF: Can You Use Other Algorithms Besides PPO?

Learn why you can use other algorithms besides PPO to update the model weights during RLHF, a technique that trains a reward model from human feedback and uses it to optimize an agent’s policy.


“You can use an algorithm other than Proximal Policy Optimization to update the model weights during RLHF.” Is this true or false?

A. True
B. False


A. True


The correct answer is A. True. You can use an algorithm other than Proximal Policy Optimization (PPO) to update the model weights during RLHF. RLHF stands for Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback, and it is a technique that trains a reward model directly from human feedback and uses the model as a reward function to optimize an agent’s policy using reinforcement learning (RL). PPO is a popular RL algorithm that can be used to fine-tune the agent’s policy based on the reward model, but it is not the only option. Other RL algorithms, such as Trust Region Policy Optimization (TRPO), Actor-Critic using Kronecker-Factored Trust Region (ACKTR), or Soft Actor-Critic (SAC), can also be used for RLHF, as long as they can handle the high variance and sparse rewards of the human feedback.
