GOTO Book Club: How to Leverage Reinforcement Learning

GOTO Book Club: How to Leverage Reinforcement Learning

Thu Feb 4, 2021, in Reinforcement Learning, Talk

In this episode of GOTO’s book club I speak to Rebecca Nugent, Feinberg professor of statistics and data science at Carnegie Mellon univeristy. We talk, at length, about the application of reinforcment learning, specifically how it could be a way of creating truly personalised teaching curricula. It’s a really interesting discussion and it’s great to get someone of Rebecca’s calibre to bounce ideas off.

A Code-Driven Introduction to Reinforcement Learning

A Code-Driven Introduction to Reinforcement Learning

Wed Nov 11, 2020, in Reinforcement Learning, Talk

Notebook link Abstract Reinforcement learning (RL) is lined up to become the hottest new artificial intelligence paradigm in the next few years. Building upon machine learning, reinforcement learning has the potential to automate strategic-level thinking in industry. In this presentation I present a code-driven introduction to RL, where you will explore a fundamental framework called the Markov decision process (MDP) and learn how to build an RL algorithm to solve it.

A Comparison of Reinforcement Learning Frameworks: Dopamine, RLLib, Keras-RL, Coach, TRFL, Tensorforce, Coach and more

Mon Jul 1, 2019, by Phil Winder, in Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement Learning (RL) frameworks help engineers by creating higher level abstractions of the core components of an RL algorithm. This makes code easier to develop, easier to read and improves efficiency.

But choosing a framework introduces some amount of lock in. An investment in learning and using a framework can make it hard to break away. This is just like when you decide which pub to visit. It’s very difficult not to buy a beer, no matter how bad the place is.

Announcement: New Reinforcement Learning Book with O'Reilly

Tue Jun 25, 2019, by phil-winder, in Reinforcement Learning

I’m excited to announce that I have agreed with O’Reilly Media to write a new book on Reinforcement Learning. The contracts have just been signed and I’ve started the writing process. It is likely to take around a year to be released so I’m hoping that it will be ready around Summer 2020.
