CSCI 2951F - Learning and Sequential Decision Making
The course explores automated decision making from a computer-science perspective. It examines efficient algorithms, where they exist, for single agent and multiagent planning as well as approaches to learning near-optimal decisions from experience. Topics will include Markov decision processes, stochastic and repeated games, partially observable Markov decision processes, and reinforcement learning. Of particular interest will be issues of generalization, exploration, and representation. Each student will be expected to present a published research paper and will participate in a group programming project. Prerequisite: a graduate-level computer science course and some exposure to reinforcement learning from a previous computer-science class or seminar.
