Prof. Shie Mannor, Electrical Engineering, Technion/SAIPSReinforcement Learning for Autonomous Systems: The Future is Here


Reinforcement Learning (RL) is the discipline in the intersection of control and machine learning.

In this talk I will present the reinforcement learning scheme and focus on some recent advances in the field.

I will then survey some approaches that have been advocated for learning in autonomous systems. I will discuss some

issues that need to be resolved and point to some intrinsic difficulties with these approaches. I will then talk about RL for autonomous driving and share some of our experience in applying RL to Level 3 and Level 4 autonomous driving.
