About this event

This talk aims to provide a broad introduction to the theory and approaches for learning under uncertainty. The general goal of these approaches is to build an agent that maximizes rewards for a particular behaviour as the agent interacts with a random Environment in a feedback loop. The agent updates its policy or strategy for making decisions in the face of uncertainty by the responses the agent receives from the Environment. This talk will show examples of training agents in different Environments using the TensorFlow Agents library.
