Covers: theory of Reinforcement Learning
Estimated time needed to finish: 10 minutes
Questions this item addresses:
  • What is reinforcement learning?
How to use this item?

I recommend you watch the first video in this series. Michael & Charles are not only incredible researchers and teachers, but they also have great senses of humor. You should be able to quickly tell if you would enjoy listening to them teach RL from the ground up --- I found their series quite enjoyable!
