Course Overview

This course covers fundamental topics relevant to reinforcement learning, a computational approach to learning whereby an agent tries to maximize the total amount of reward it receives while interacting with a complex and uncertain environment. Recent progress for deep reinforcement learning and its applications will be also discussed.
