How do you get machine learning systems to:
- Win at Chess
- Play Hide & Seek
- Learn to Walk
This field is called reinforcement learning.
Here are 3 books that will give you a headstart right away:
by Richard Sutton
This is the book about reinforcement learning.
From the “Distinguished Scientist at Deepmind” the company that used reinforcement learning for Alpha Go.
Pick up Reinforcement Learning
Deep Reinforcement Learning Hands-On
by Maxim Lapan
This book works through specific applications to keep us engaged.
But it doesn’t ignore the fundamentals.
Great all-round book.
Foundations of Deep Reinforcement Learning: Theory and Practice in Python
by Laura Graesser
This book covers much of the foundation.
When it goes to specific algorithm the authors first work through the theory and then show an implementation in Python.
