Lets Learn About A.I. Episode 4 - Introduction to Agents, Part 1

Hi everyone!

We’re back after a long hiatus! In this episode, we start to introduce the more technical definition of an agent, and how it interacts with its environment. I also discuss the topic of how to grade an agent (rather abstractly), and why the ability to learn is important for something to be considered autonomous, or intelligent. Next episode, we will talk about some paradigms of how an agent can be implemented, and how the agent can learn from its environment. Hopefully these two will be the most boring episode in the show :)
