Of all the advances in machine learning, deep reinforcement learning is the closest to achieving artificial intelligence as it is portrayed in science fiction. We will cover the basic concepts of reinforcement learning, discuss the impact of deep learning, and then perform a live demo of a deep RL agent playing Atari.
