Goal: Introduce you to an impressive example of reinforcement learning (its biggest success). The following papers and reports have a strong connection to material in the book, and amplify on its analysis and its range of applications. Stochastic optimal control emerged in the 1950âs, building on what was already a mature community for deterministic optimal control that emerged in the early 1900âs and has been adopted around the world. Our group pursues theoretical and algorithmic advances in data-driven and model-based decision making in â¦ â cornell university â 30 â share . Unfortunately, the stochastic optimal control using actor-critic RL is still an unexplored research topic due to the difficulties of designing updating laws and proving stability and convergence. This review mainly covers artificial-intelligence approaches to RL, from the viewpoint of the control engineer. Control theory is a mathematical description of how to act optimally to gain future rewards. In recent years, it has been successfully applied to solve large scale Reinforcement learning (RL) methods often rely on massive exploration data to search optimal policies, and suffer from poor sampling efficiency.
