Reinforcement Learning

How Monopoly is helping create the AI of the future


Making novelty a central focus of modern AI research and evaluation has had the byproduct of producing an initial body of work in support of a science of novelty. Not only are researchers like ourselves exploring definitions and theories of novelty, but we are exploring questions that could have fundamental implications. For example, our team is exploring the question of when a novelty is expected to be impossibly difficult for an AI. In the real world, if such a situation arises, the AI would recognize it and call a human operator.

Maximum entropy RL (provably) solves some robust RL problems


Nearly all real-world applications of reinforcement learning involve some degree of shift between the training environment and the testing environment. However, prior work has observed that even small shifts in the environment cause most RL algorithms to perform markedly worse. As we aim to scale reinforcement learning algorithms and apply them in the real world, it is increasingly important to learn policies that are robust to changes in the environment. Broadly, prior approaches to handling distribution shift in RL aim to maximize performance in either the average case or the worst case. While these methods have been successfully applied to a number of areas (e.g., self-driving cars, robot locomotion and manipulation), their success rests critically on the design of the distribution of environments.

Portfolio Optimization using Reinforcement Learning


Reinforcement learning is arguably the coolest branch of artificial intelligence. It has already proven its prowess: stunning the world, beating the world champions in games of Chess, Go, and even DotA 2. Using RL for stock trading has always been a holy grail among data scientists. Stock trading has drawn our imaginations because of its ease of access and to misquote Cardi B, we like diamond and we like dollars . There are several ways of using Machine Learning for stock trading. One approach is to use forecasting techniques to predict the movement of the stock and build some heuristic based bot that uses the prediction to make decisions.

Deep Q-Learning Simply Explained


I find Atari games to be really difficult. The game consists of two paddles on opposite sides of the game screen bouncing a ball back and forth. If the ball goes past one of the paddles, a point is gained by the opposing paddle. The first paddle to reach twenty points wins the game. It sounds easy, but I find that when I play the game, I have to stay laser-focused on my screen, taking note of every miniscule movement of the ball to ensure that I prevent the opponent from scoring a point. One moment of hesitation can create a chance for the opponent to win.

Reinforcement Learning for Dynamic Pricing


Limitations on physical interactions throughout the world have reshaped our lives and habits. And while the pandemic has been disrupting the majority of industries, e-commerce has been thriving. This article covers how reinforcement learning for dynamic pricing helps retailers refine their pricing strategies to increase profitability and boost customer engagement and loyalty. In dynamic pricing, we want an agent to set optimal prices based on market conditions. In terms of RL concepts, actions are all of the possible prices and states, market conditions, except for the current price of the product or service.

English [Auto], Spanish [Auto]Preview this Course - GET COUPON CODE In recent years, we've seen a resurgence in AI, or artificial intelligence, and machine learning. Machine learning has led to some amazing results, like being able to analyze medical images and predict diseases on-par with human experts. Google's AlphaGo program was able to beat a world champion in the strategy game go using deep reinforcement learning. Machine learning is even being used to program self driving cars, which is going to change the automotive industry forever. Imagine a world with drastically reduced car accidents, simply by removing the element of human error.

Playing Pong using Reinforcement Learning


In the 1970s, Pong was a very popular video arcade game. It is a 2D video game emulating table tennis, i.e. you got a bat (a rectangle) you can move vertically and try to hit a "ball" (a moving square). If the ball hits the bounding box of the game, it bounces back like a billiard ball. If you miss the ball, the opponent scores. A single-player adaptation Breakout came out later, where the ball had the ability to destroy some blocks on the top of the screen and the bat moved to the bottom of the screen.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)


Artificial Intelligence (AI) A branch of computer science that is focused on a machine's capability to produce rational behavior from external inputs What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a broad branch of computer science that is focused on a machine's capability to produce rational behavior from external inputs. The goal of AI is to create systems that can perform tasks that would otherwise require human intelligence. Types of Artificial Intelligence 1. Reactive Machines Reactive machines perceive present external information and plan actions accordingly. The machines perform specialized duties and only understand the task at hand.
