In this workshop, we introduce you to Reinforcement Learning (RL). Reinforcement Learning is a type of machine learning technique that enables an agent to learn in an interactive environment by trial and error using feedback from its own actions and experiences. This workshop introduces you to RL, ways to formulate RL problems with the help of RL algorithms and understanding the practical applications and challenges of RL. A demonstration in Pytorch is also provided to better understand Reinforcement Learning.

The quiz can be found here!

Good News! We have made the process of participating and winning prizes a LOT simpler. After watching the workshop videos, you can test how well you have understood the concepts by participating in a short online quiz which consists of MCQs and short answer questions. This will not just help you reinforce what you have learned but also help you win prizes!

As always, we are partnering with Amazon Prime Student to provide gift cards worth 25 CAD each when you answer them correctly* ! So stay tuned for our upcoming workshop which will be released on our YouTube channel on March 27th, 2021.

Wait a minute, what time is it?…. We value the fact that you are busy, and hence we’ll upload the recorded videos on our YouTube channel, so that you can watch it when you have time!

The Colab notebook can be found here
