**Modeling Agents with Probabilistic Programs**

by Owain Evans, et al.

**Publisher**: AgentModels.org 2017**Number of pages**: 345

**Description**:

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.

**Boosting: Foundations and Algorithms**

by

**Robert E. Schapire, Yoav Freund**-

**The MIT Press**

Boosting is an approach to machine learning based on the idea of creating a highly accurate predictor by combining many weak and inaccurate 'rules of thumb'. A remarkably rich theory has evolved around boosting, with connections to a range of topics.
