Deep Learning Research Review Week 2: Reinforcement Learning
This is the 2nd installment of a new series called Deep Learning Research Review. Every couple weeks or so, I’ll be summarizing and explaining research papers in specific subfields of deep learning. This week focuses on Reinforcement Learning.
Imagine you're blind folded in a rough terrain, and your objective is to reach the lowest altitude. One of the best and simplest strategies you can use, is to feel the ground in every direction, and take a step in the direction where the ground is descending the fastest. If you keep repeating this process, you might end up at the lake, or even better, somewhere in the huge valley.
The rough terrain is analogous to the cost function....
A Visual Introduction (and Review) of Machine Learning
The following links are extremely well done visualizations which cover the important machine learning concepts. We highly recommend you check it out. In fact, they are the best visualizations of machine learning concepts on the web:
Here is another video by Luis Serrano, one of the course developers of Udacity Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree. Must watch for beginners, and a helpful review if you have just learnt the core machine learning concepts.
