Using continuous actions, the performance may be improved in comparison to using discrete actions, however, this leads to excessive time to find a proper policy. In this work, we focus on including human feedback in reinforcement learning for a continuous action space. We unify the policy and the feedback to favor actions of low probability density. Furthermore, we compare the performance of the feedback for the continuous actor-critic algorithm and test our experiments in the cart-pole balancing task. The obtained results show that the proposed approach increases the accumulated reward in comparison to the autonomous learning method.
