We’re entering an era where AI can discover patterns and causality beyond the data we provide. Reinforcement learning (RL) is a powerful technique that lets AI achieve our goals by learning from its own actions and experiences, even when no training data exists.

Microsoft has an ecosystem spanning research, gaming, and the cloud that’s advancing reinforcement learning (RL) and putting it into everyday use. Join Edward Jezierski to see where RL is used practically across Microsoft and imagine the opportunities that exist for your business today.

This keynote is sponsored by Microsoft.
