Designing autonomous decision making systems is one of the longstanding goals of Artificial Intelligence. Such decision making systems, if realized, can have a big impact in machine learning for robotics, game playing, control, health care to name a few. This course introduces Reinforcement Learning as a general framework to design such autonomous decision making systems. By the end of this course, you will have a solid knowledge of the core challenges in designing RL systems and how to approach them.
This course will be offered in English. However, the students in this course can submit in English or French any written work that is to be graded.
Quebec university students from outside Polytechnique Montreal can register for the course via Inter-University Transfer Authorization.
Please note that I will also be teaching Machine Learning (ML) (INF8245E) this Fall. You can take both the courses (ML and RL) in parallel.
