Danny Lange demonstrates the role games can play in driving the development of reinforcement learning algorithms. Danny uses the Unity Engine with the ML-Agents toolkit as an example of how dynamic 3D game environments can be utilized for machine learning research. Along the way, Danny offers an overview of the kinds of algorithms being used to train machine learning agents, including various reinforcement learning and supervised learning methods. You’ll walk away ready to conduct machine learning research within custom-made 3D game environments, using a deep reinforcement learning methodology that can be applied to solving a variety of tasks in these environments.

Danny Lange将演示游戏在推动强化学习算法的发展过程中所扮演的角色。 Danny使用ML-Agents工具包的Unity Engine作为动态3D游戏环境用于机器学习研究的例子。在此过程中,Danny还会概述用于训练机器学习代理的各种算法,包括各种强化学习和监督式学习方法。结束时,你将能了解如何在定制的3D游戏环境中进行机器学习研究,使用深度强化学习方法去解决这些环境中的各种任务。
