13. Deep Reinforcement Learning

In Chapter 4, we introduced the paradigm of reinforcement learning (as distinct from supervised and unsupervised learning), in which an agent (e.g., an algorithm) takes sequential actions within an environment. The environments—whether they be simulated or real world—can be extremely complex and rapidly changing, requiring sophisticated agents that can adapt appropriately in order to succeed at fulfilling their objective. Today, many of the most prolific reinforcement learning agents involve an artificial neural network, making them deep reinforcement learning algorithms.

In this chapter, we will
