Event description
Come join us at a free workshop on reinforcement learning.

About this Event

Reinforcement learning (RL) is a branch of machine learning in which an agent interacts with an environment in order to maximize a specified reward. Industrial applications of reinforcement learning have so far been limited, but with recent advances in deep learning, data availability, and computing power, RL have begun to see success in the fields of autonomous vehicles, robotics, and others.

This presentation will focus on the mathematical foundations for two of the most widely used family of RL algorithms, Q-learning and policy gradients, and talk about advancements in the field that lead to the state of the art algorithms widely used today. Additionally, we will talk about considerations on how to apply RL to a problem. Lastly, we will discuss the limitations of RL, as well as how someone can get started today working on RL application and research.
