Instructor-led Classroom Adult Training in Singapore - Modular Fast Track Skill-Based Trainings

Deep Reinforcement Learning for Beginners

Reinforcement Learning is a type of machine learning that allows machines and software agents to act smart and automatically detect the ideal behavior within a specific environment, in order to maximize its performance and productivity. Reinforcement Learning is becoming popular because it not only serves as an way to study how machine and software agents learn to act, it is also been used as a tool for constructing autonomous systems that improve themselves with experience.

This course will teach you the basics of reinforcement learning and implement using Python and Tensorflow. The topics include:

  • Q Learning
  • Sarsa
  • Deep Q-Network
  • Open AI Gym
  • Policy Gradient
  • Actor Critic
