2020 has been quite a year. I think back over all the so called “1-in-100 year” events. The statistician in me suggests that this isn’t as surprising as it sounds, given the size of the world and globalized communication. But the fact that COVID-19 has affected so many is almost unprecedented. To help provide some semblance of festive cheer I’m happy to offer one lucky person a free copy of my new book, Reinforcement Learning: Industrial Applications of Intelligent Agents.
