“Towards Artificial Intelligence”

On 30th June 2020, Data Science Milan has organized a webMeetup hosting Marco Del Pra, an Artificial Intelligence Specialist, to talk about Reinforcement Learning.

“Reinforcement Learning Overview”, by Marco Del Pra, Freelancer

Reinforcement Learning, is the area of Machine Learning that deals with sequential decision-making, it can be described as a Markov decision process.

There are three basic concepts in Reinforcement Learning: state, action, and reward. The state describes the current situation. The action is what an agent can do in each state. The reward describes the feedback from the environment which can be positive or even…
