First Draft: Virtual Pets (Reinforcement Learning) Uni Assignment

Well the first draft is there. The assignment says approx 1500 words, I’m currently sitting at 1190, excluding footnotes and such. I’m not sure if I should add more, cause I think the next thing is to talk about Markov Decision Processes, Dynamic Programming, Monte Carlo Methods, or Temporal-Difference Learning.

All of which are quite large topics and I worry would bulk up the essay to much, it feels quite clean and complete at the moment.

The marking guidelines say for full marks you need to demonstrate the following.

  • The example is valid, clearly identified and accurately described. 
  • The identification of the intelligent aspect is accurate, plausible and clearly justified.
  • The explanation of how the ‘intelligence’ is achieved is accurate and clear and evidenced by suitable references.

That dreaded question, does it satisfy all the markers needs?
