### Abstract

Reinforcement learning is, as many things are in machine learning, both the problem and the solution.

The problem: How should an agent act in an uncertain environment? The Solution: Optimal.

In this lecture we will introduce the underlying theory of reinforcement learning: Markov Decision Processes, Bellman equations, and Value Iteration.

We will also provide an introduction to more modern approaches such as Q-learning, and Deep Q-learning. In the end we will play some tic-tac-toe against our own creation.
