Abstract | 概要

Reinforcement learning is the study of sequential decision making, with the “simple” objective of maximising long-term reward. In this talk I will introduce the two main approaches to solving reinforcement learning, evaluating their pros and cons. To finish, I will introduce upside down reinforcement learning, which may provide a simplified approach to tackling many traditional reinforcement learning problems.
