Keras Reinforcement Learning Projects

By: Giuseppe Ciaburro

Overview of this book

Reinforcement learning has evolved a lot in the last couple of years and proven to be a successful technique in building smart and intelligent AI networks. Keras Reinforcement Learning Projects installs human-level performance into your applications using algorithms and techniques of reinforcement learning, coupled with Keras, a faster experimental library. The book begins with getting you up and running with the concepts of reinforcement learning using Keras. You’ll learn how to simulate a random walk using Markov chains and select the best portfolio using dynamic programming (DP) and Python. You’ll also explore projects such as forecasting stock prices using Monte Carlo methods, delivering vehicle routing application using Temporal Distance (TD) learning algorithms, and balancing a Rotating Mechanical System using Markov decision processes. Once you’ve understood the basics, you’ll move on to Modeling of a Segway, running a robot control system using deep reinforcement learning, and building a handwritten digit recognition model in Python using an image dataset. Finally, you’ll excel in playing the board game Go with the help of Q-Learning and reinforcement learning algorithms. By the end of this book, you’ll not only have developed hands-on training on concepts, algorithms, and techniques of reinforcement learning but also be all set to explore the world of AI.

Robot Control System Using Deep Reinforcement Learning

Robots are now an integral part of our living environments. In the industrial field, they represent a valid aid to humankind by replacing people in alienating job. The task of a robot control system is to execute the planned sequence of movements and to identify an alternative path in the presence of obstacles. In this chapter, we address the problem of robot navigation in simple maze-like environments where the robot has to rely on its onboard sensors to perform navigation tasks.

The following topics are covered in this chapter:

  • Robot control overview
  • Environment to control robot mobility
  • Q-learning
  • Deep Q-learning

At the end of the chapter, the reader will learn the basis of robot control theory. Discover the evolution of robotics technology, different type of robots. Learn the basic concepts of control architectures....
