Reinforcement Learning & Deep RL Python(Theory & Projects)

Course Description

Comprehensive Course Description:

Reinforcement Learning (RL) is a subset of machine learning. In the RL training method, desired actions are rewarded, and undesired actions are punished. In general, an RL agent can understand and interpret its environment, take action, and also learn through trial and error.

Deep Reinforcement Learning (Deep RL) is also a subfield of machine learning. In Deep RL, intelligent machines and software are trained to learn from their actions in the same way that humans learn from experience. That is, Deep RL blends RL techniques with Deep Learning (DL) strategies.

Deep RL has the capability to solve complex problems that were unmanageable by machines in the past. Therefore, the potential applications of Deep RL in various sectors such as robotics, medicine, finance, gaming, smart grids, and more are enormous.

The phenomenal ability of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) to process unstructured information fast and learn like a human brain is starting to be exploited only now. We are only in the initial stages of seeing the full impact of the technology that combines the power of RL and ANNs. This latest technology has the potential to revolutionize every sphere of commerce and science.

Why Should You Learn RL & Deep RL?

RL and Deep RL are the hottest research topics in the Artificial Intelligence universe.

Reinforcement learning (RL) is a subset of machine learning concerned with the actions that intelligent agents need to take in an environment in order to maximize the reward. RL is one of three essential machine learning paradigms, besides supervised learning and unsupervised learning.

Let’s look at the next hot research topic.

Deep Reinforcement Learning (Deep RL) is a subset of machine learning that blends Reinforcement Learning (RL) and Deep Learning (DL). Deep RL integrates deep learning into the solution, permitting agents to make decisions from unstructured input data without human intervention. Deep RL algorithms can take in large inputs (e.g., every pixel rendered to the user’s screen in a video game) and determine the best actions to perform to optimize an objective (e.g., attain the maximum game score).

Deep RL has been used for an assortment of applications, including but not limited to video games, oil & gas, natural language processing, computer vision, retail, education, transportation, and healthcare.
