Introduction of Reinforcement Learning

The idea that we learn by interacting with our environment is probably the first to occur to us when we think about the nature of learning. When an infant plays, waves its arms, or looks about, it has no explicit teacher, but it does have a direct sensorimotor connection to its environment. Reinforcement learning is a computational approach to understanding and automating goal-directed learning and decision-making. It is distinguished from other computational approaches by its emphasis on learning. it is done by an agent from direct interaction with its environment. without relying on exemplary supervision or complete models of the environment. Overview of Reinforcement Learning Reinforcement learning is learning what to do–how to map situations to actions–so as to maximize a numerical reward signal. The learner is not told which actions to take, as in most forms of machine learning, but instead must discover which actions yield the most reward by trying them. In the most interesting and challenging cases, actions may affect not only the immediate reward but also the next situation and, through that, all subsequent rewards. These two characteristics–trial-and-error search and delayed reward–are the two most important distinguishing features of reinforcement learning.  Reinforcement Learning is a type…
