About the course
This course gives a solid introduction to the modern tools used to devise, implement and analyse reinforcement learning algorithms, and also introduces some key concepts from feedback control. The course covers feedback control systems, Markov decision processes, planning by dynamic programming, model-free prediction and control, learning with function approximations and deep Q-learning. Possible applications discussed during the course include classical control problems like the inverted pendulum, as well as robotics and video games.
