Next you'll implement some of these concepts in Scala, starting from scratch and working step by step towards an implementation of 'Q-learning' – a popular RL technique for learning policies. You'll structure your code using type classes to separate the generic Q-learning framework from the specifics of any particular problem we want to model.
You will also learn how to train an agent using your Q-learning implementation, and finally Chris will demonstrate the result of the training: the computer successfully playing a simple game.
