Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the theory of certain methods in machine learning and to implement corresponding algorithms. Selected timely application problems are solved in this manner.

Subject of course

This time there will be a focus on reinforcement learning (RL) and timely applications such as:

  • deep RL,
  • RL with function approximation in scientific and medical applications,
  • autonomous driving,
  • algorithms for computer games (Atari 2600, ALE (arcade learning environment)),
  • algorithms for games such as Go,
  • etc.

Theory: convergence and complexity of various algorithms.

Teaching methods
