MSc Project – Atari Game State Representation using CNNs

I was recently asked to guest lecture at De Montfort University to the MSc students studying Intelligent Systems and Robotics, and Business Intelligence Systems and Data Mining. The lecturer was on my MSc project which I completed at the university last year.

The project was around the use of Convolutional Neural Networks with my work focusing on published work from Deepmind, specifically “Playing Atari with Deep Reinforcement Learning” (2013). You can view a Google blog focusing on the 2015 publication here.

Below is a copy of the slides I presented. They are slightly modified from my dissertation viva as I wanted to express to the students the steps taken throughout the project.
