  • Algorithms for Reinforcement Learningby Csaba Szepesvari

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010; US$ 35.00

    Reinforcement learning is a learning paradigm concerned with learning to control a system so as to maximize a numerical performance measure that expresses a long-term objective. What distinguishes reinforcement learning from supervised learning is that only partial feedback is given to the learner about the learner's predictions. Further, the predictions... more...

  • Intelligent Autonomous Roboticsby Peter Stone
