Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement Learning is a type of machine learning algorithm that learns to solve a multi-level problem by trial and error.

The machine is trained on real-life scenarios to make a sequence of decisions. It receives either rewards or penalties for the actions it performs. Its goal is to maximize the total reward.

By Deep Reinforcement Learning we mean multiple layers of Artificial Neural Networks that are present in the architecture to replicate the working of a human brain.
