Each week is a mixture of lectures, discussions of academic papers, and hands-on work. In the first part of the course, there will be home assignments, for which the hands-on work prepares them. There are 4 assignments in total, a well as a mini-project (done in teams of 2-3 students), where students integrate what they have learned. 

Advanced students may replace 2 assignments with being discussion leader for a week.
The course mainly follows the structure of our draft book, "Decision Making Under Uncertainty and Reinforcement Learning" (see website). Other material will be referred to in the reading assignments.
