Hands-on workshop: Demystifying deep reinforcement learning

Familiarize yourself with Deep Reinforcement Learning by working through examples

Deep Reinforcement Learning (RL) combines Reinforcement Learning algorithms with Deep Learning (DL) paradigm. This hands-on workshop will help participants get familiar with deep RL by working through notebook examples. Apart from the core concepts, the instructors will discuss recent advances and practical implementations of deep RL.

Workshop course contents and schedule:

  1. Introduction to Reinforcement Learning (RL)
  2. Deep RL with notebook examples: learning to play mario/alphago/a-game via Deep Q learning
  3. Deep RL with notebook examples: learning to play the same game via proximal policy gradient
  4. Recent advances in Deep RL
  5. When and how to apply deep reinforcement learning in your work with examples from stock trading, recommendation systems, dialog systems and autonomous driving.

Who should attend this workshop:

Engineers, managers and directors who:

  1. Want to solve real business problems that they know can’t be solved using traditional supervised ML techniques.
  2. Are curious about understanding Deep Reinforcement Learning.


  1. Participants should bring their own laptops with Pytorch and Python 3.5 installed before the workshop. Additional time will not be allotted for software installation during the workshop.
  2. Participants should have done hands-on machine learning. For example, I work as a ML/DL/AI engineer or data scientist having at least one year of hands-on experience with XYZ organization. Online course certification doesn’t count for experience.
