Getting Started with Next-Generation Artificial Intelligence through Reinforcement Learning

Next-generation AI compels us to realize that machines do indeed think. Although machines do not think like us, their thought process has proven its efficiency in many areas. In the past, the belief was that AI would reproduce human thinking processes. Only neuromorphic computing (see Chapter 18, Neuromorphic Computing), remains set on this goal. Most AI has now gone beyond the way humans think, as we will see in this chapter.

The Markov decision process (MDP), a reinforcement learning (RL) algorithm, perfectly illustrates how machines have become intelligent in their own unique way. Humans build their decision process on experience. MDPs are memoryless. ...
