About this Event

Reinforcement learning agents that can beat human players in games have been in the news a lot of times. Wouldn't it be great if you could make one yourself? This hackathon is all about that :-)!

No need to be an airhockey champion or RL expert. We will start the hackathon by explaining the context & will also provide you with code for a minimal RL agent that is able to play the airhockey game. If you want to get some basics about reinforcement learning, certainly checkout these talks:
