Lectures

Lecture 11 slides updated on May 18.

The lectures are given in English to all students. Lecture slides up to the latest lecture: smu-slides.pdf.

The book links below pointing to Springer Link let you download the PDFs if accessing from the CVUT domain. Don't get confused by the indexing in the Universal AI book: it is different from ours because Hutter assumes the agent-env interaction to start with an agent's action whereas we start with a percept from the environment (for us, this is more natural in the reinforcement and concept learning scenarios).
