Reinforcement Learning Workshop
Deep Reinforcement-Learning (RL) in various decision-making tasks of Machine-Learning (ML) provides effective results with an agent/agents learning from observing an environment and gaining rewards and punishments. RL as a great technique in ML shows its ability to be utilized in different time-series and Computer Vision-based (CV) projects like autonomous driving, robotics, traffic control, web system configuration, recommendation systems and game applications. In complex environments where RL underperforms as a consequence of extensive demonstration information in long-horizon problems, Imitation Learning (IL) offers a promising solution for the challenges. In IL, the learning process can take advantage of human-sourced assistance and/or control over the agent and environment. The purpose of this talk is to provide an introduction to Deep RL and IL at a level easily understood by students and researchers in a wide range of disciplines. Also, we will overview different RL and IL techniques and methods as long as discuss how they are utilized to improve the performance of different tasks. Also, we cover the usage of RL and IL in CV, NLP and time-series tasks.
