Reinforcement Learning. Instructor: Prof. Balaraman Ravindran, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Madras. Reinforcement learning is a paradigm that aims to model the trial-and-error learning process that is needed in many problem situations where explicit instructive signals are not available. It has roots in operations research, behavioral psychology and AI. The goal of the course is to introduce the basic mathematical foundations of reinforcement learning, as well as highlight some of the recent directions of research. (from nptel.ac.in)
|Lecture 02 - Probability Basics 2|
Taken from Prof. Ravindran's Introduction to Machine Learning course, this tutorial aims to give a refresher on the basic concepts of probability that we will be making use of in the upcoming lectures. Topics covered in the second part include random variables, expectations and probability distributions.
