This classic 10 part course, taught by Reinforcement Learning (RL) pioneer David Silver, was recorded in 2015 and remains a popular resource for anyone wanting to understand the fundamentals of RL.
Reinforcement Learning has emerged as a powerful technique in modern machine learning, allowing a system to learn through a process of trial and error. It has been succesfully applied in many domains, including systems such as AlphaZero, that learnt to master the games of chess, Go and Shogi.
This lecture series, taught at University College London by David Silver – DeepMind Principal Scienctist, UCL professor and the co-creator of AlphaZero – will introduce students to the main methods and techniques used in RL. Students will also find Sutton and Bartos classic book, Reinforcement Learning: an Introduction a helpful companion.
