Reinforcement Learning with TensorFlow: A beginner's guide to designing self-learning systems with TensorFlow and OpenAI Gym


Leverage the power of reinforcement learning techniques to develop self-learning systems using TensorFlow

Key Features

  • Explore reinforcement learning concepts and their implementation using TensorFlow
  • Discover different problem-solving methods for reinforcement learning
  • Apply reinforcement learning to autonomous driving cars, robobrokers, and more

Book Description

Reinforcement learning (RL) allows you to develop smart, quick and self-learning systems in your business surroundings. It's an effective method for training learning agents and solving a variety of problems in Artificial Intelligence - from games, self-driving cars and robots, to enterprise applications such as data center energy saving (cooling data centers) and smart warehousing solutions.

The book covers major advancements and successes achieved in deep reinforcement learning by synergizing deep neural network architectures with reinforcement learning. You'll also be introduced to the concept of reinforcement learning, its advantages and the reasons why it's gaining so much popularity. You'll explore MDPs, Monte Carlo tree searches, dynamic programming such as policy and value iteration, and temporal difference learning such as Q-learning and SARSA. You will use TensorFlow and OpenAI Gym to build simple neural network models that learn from their own actions. You will also see how reinforcement learning algorithms play a role in games, image processing and NLP.

By the end of this book, you will have gained a firm understanding of what reinforcement learning is and understand how to put your knowledge to practical use by leveraging the power of TensorFlow and OpenAI Gym.

What you will learn

  • Implement state-of-the-art reinforcement learning algorithms from the basics
  • Discover various reinforcement learning techniques such as MDP, Q Learning, and more
  • Explore the applications of reinforcement learning in advertisement, image processing, and NLP
  • Teach a reinforcement learning model to play a game using TensorFlow and OpenAI Gym
  • Understand how reinforcement learning applications are used in robotics

Embedded Systems: Desktop Integration (Wordware Applications Library)
In this book, we design a thermostat that interfaces to a host
system through RS-232, USB, and Ethernet. To make things fun,
the device layer and user applications have to run on Windows,
Linux, and FreeBSD. We build three prototype thermostats using
the BASIC Stamp, PIC Microcontroller, and PSOC Microcontroller.
