Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction

Publisher: University of Pennsylvania 2014
Number of pages: 261
This course will focus on theoretical aspects of Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction. The minimax approach, which we emphasize throughout the course, offers a systematic way of comparing learning problems. Beyond the theoretical analysis, we will discuss learning algorithms and, in particular, an important connection between learning and optimization.

The starting point is the formulation of of an optimal control problem and deriving the different types of solutions and algorithms from there. These lecture notes aim at supporting this unified view with a unified notation wherever possible.

We focus on those algorithms of reinforcement learning that build on the theory of dynamic programming. We give a comprehensive catalog of learning problems, describe the core ideas, followed by the discussion of their properties and limitations.

This book describes and implements models of rational agents for (PO)MDPs and Reinforcement Learning. One motivation is to create richer models of human planning, which capture human biases. The book assumes basic programming experience.
