Reinforce Learning can be a game changer when you do not have training data, but are instead able to simulate an environment. Unfortunately, the theory of Reinforcement Learning is complex and the vast number of algorithms in that area adds to the burden for getting started. Easyagents takes some of the burden by making it a one-liner to run a Reinforcement Learning algorithm on your problem.
