Joe Booth, former Vice President of Engineering at Orions Systems (now part of Microsoft, where Booth is a Principal Group Engineering Manager) and an independent researcher, presents the “Reinforcement Learning: a Practical Introduction” tutorial at the September 2020 Embedded Vision Summit.
This talk provides a practical introduction to reinforcement learning. Booth explains how reinforcement learning relates to other machine learning methods, provides examples of real-world deployments, and gives a technical overview of the elements of reinforcement learning.
Booth also presents practical advice on when to use reinforcement learning and how to structure problems to use reinforcement learning effectively. Finally, he provides the recommended resources for learning more about this important technique.
