Distinguished Lecture Series: Feature-Based Aggregation and Deep Reinforcement Learning

Presented by Dimitri P. Bertsekas, McAfee professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Professor Dimitri P. Bertsekas will provide an overview of policy iteration/self-learning methods for approximate solution of large Markov decision problems. The lecture’s focus will be on schemes that combine ideas from two major but heretofore unrelated approaches: feature-based aggregation, which has a long history in large-scale dynamic programming, and reinforcement learning based on deep neural networks, which achieved spectacular success recently in the context of games such as chess and Go.
