We present our work reproducing the paper TCP ex Machina: Computer-Generated Congestion Control. We begin with code and pre-trained algorithms provided by the authors to generate figure 4 in the paper. We then re-train algorithms using the provided code. Next, we then reproduce figure 2 from the followup paper, An experimental study of the learnability of congestion control. Finally, we experiment with the latest version of the code and compare it to their results from 2014.
