**Reinforcement Learning**

by C. Weber, M. Elshaw, N. M. Mayer

**Publisher**: InTech 2008**ISBN-13**: 9783902613141**Number of pages**: 424

**Description**:

The first 11 chapters of this book describe and extend the scope of reinforcement learning. The remaining 11 chapters show that there is already wide usage in numerous fields. Reinforcement learning can tackle control tasks that are too complex for traditional, hand-designed, non-learning controllers. As learning computers can deal with technical complexities, the tasks of human operators remain to specify goals on increasingly higher levels.
