Why you should do this Guided Project

As a popular casino card game, many have studied Blackjack closely in order to devise strategies for improving their likelihood of winning.  In this project, we will use Reinforcement Learning to find the best playing strategy for Blackjack. We will use Monte Carlo Reinforcement learning algorithms to do it; you will see how  Reinforcement Learning can determine the optimum Blackjack strategy in just a few minutes.   You will quickly grasp important concepts of Reinforcement learning and apply open AI's gym, the go-to framework for Reinforcement learning.


A Look at the Project Ahead

In this project, you will learn how to:

*   Work with an OpenAI Gym environments
*   Explain what Reinforcement Learning is
*   Explain what Monte Carlo Method is
*   Create an agent that uses Monte Carlo Method to play Black Jack
*   Train and Test the agents using the Black Jack environment

What You'll Need

  • Knowledge of python programming language.
