Thanks Mark for such a great blog on RL. I think RL will be the coming DL hotspot. For openai gym, does it support existing DL frameworks? such as Caffe, Torch, Tensorflow, Theano, etc..?

Yes, OpenAI Gym doesn't make any restrictions on how you write your algorithms, so you can use any of these frameworks.

Does it have a ROS interface?
Here you will find a toolkit extending the OpenAI Gym for robotics, which supports ROS and Gazebo.
