Reinforcement Learning

What is reinforcement learning?

Reinforcement learning is an area of machine learning. It is about taking appropriate action to maximize reward in a particular situation. It is employed by various software and machines to find the best possible behavior or path it should take in a specific situation. In reinforcement learning, as there is no training dataset, so there is no answer, but the reinforcement agent decides what to do to perform the given task. Without a training dataset, it is bound to learn from its experience.


What are the types of reinforcement?

There are two types of reinforcement:

  • Positive Reinforcement: When an event occurs due to a particular behavior and increases the behavior’s strength and frequency. In other words, it has a positive effect on behavior.
  • Negative Reinforcement: It is defined as strengthening the behavior because a negative condition is stopped or avoided.


What are the applications of reinforcement learning?

  • Robotics for industrial automation
  • Machine learning and data processing
  • Creation of training systems that provide custom instruction and materials according to the requirements of users
