英文讲话 (Presented in English)
Location: 紫金大厅A(Grand Hall A)
Secondary topics:  增强学习(Reinforcement Learning)

Machine learning is quickly becoming essential for developers and researchers aiming to make their games or systems smarter, but complexities and technical barriers have kept it out of reach for most—until now. Danny Lange offers an overview of deep reinforcement learning, an exciting new chapter in AI’s history that is changing the way we develop and test learning algorithms that can later be used in real life. This means that we will be able to study complex behaviors in real competitive and cooperative scenarios, such as those found in industrial robotics and autonomous vehicle testing. Join Danny to learn the basics of this critical future technology and understand how it could affect your business. You’ll learn how AI agents can be trained in complex scenarios and utilize machine learning to make systems smarter and reduce human bias.
