Seminar

Prof. Nicholas Mastronarde (SUNY Buffalo); Prof. Jacob Chakareski (New Jersey Institute of Technology)

Traditional reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms are purely data-driven and operate without any a priori knowledge about the nature of the available actions, the system’s state transition dynamics, and its cost/rewa
