Modeling Agents with Probabilistic Programs
by Owain Evans, et al.
Publisher: AgentModels.org 2017
Number of pages: 345
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 and bounded rationality. The book assumes basic programming experience but is otherwise self-contained.

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 handbook aims to present the statistical foundations of machine learning intended as the discipline which deals with the automatic design of models from data. This manuscript aims to find a good balance between theory and practice.

This text focuses 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. We will discuss learning algorithms...
