Machine Learning is better at video games than you

David Der

Oh hey! This Dev Talk has already happened. You can catch a video of the talk on YouTube.


David will give a brief introduction to different types of machine learning and will focus the majority of the talk on reinforcement learning, neural networks and some fun examples of training models to play some classic video games.

David Der was co-founder and chief operating officer at Notch, which was just acquired by Capital One. He now leads a machine learning team there that is distributed between Richmond, McLean and New York.
