Recent progress in deep reinforcement learning (DRL) can be largely attributed to the use of neural networks. However, this black-box approach fails to explain the learned policy in a human understandable way. To address this challenge and improve the transparency, we propose a Neural Symbolic Reinforcement Learning framework by introducing symbolic logic into DRL. This framework features a fertilization of reasoning and learning modules, enabling end-to-end learning with prior symbolic knowledge. Moreover, interpretability is achieved by extracting the logical rules learned by the reasoning module in a symbolic rule space. The experimental results show that our framework has better interpretability, along with competing performance in comparison to state-of-the-art approaches.
