Course description

Machine Learning: Reinforceable Learning - E-learning from Udacity

Machine Learning: Reinforcement Learning

This e-learning course is designed to guide learners through Reinforced Learning, a machine learning task concerned with the actions that software agents ought to take in order to maximize rewards. Participants will gain valuable reinforcement learning approaches, such as the Markov Decision Processes and Game Theory.

A graduate level program

This Supervised Learning course is the second of three in the Machine Level series offered in cooperation with Georgia Tech. The primary outcome from this second course is to enable learners in an undersstanding of  behavioral psychology crucial for reward maximization
