In recent years, reinforcement learning(RL) has attracted a great deal of attention from academia and achieved several milestone progress such as playing video games, beating human in Go game and so on. However, applying reinforcement learning in more industrial applications is just getting started and encountering many difficulties. In our half-day expo workshop at NIPS 2018, the exploration, challenges, and research of reinforcement learning on several practical industrial fields (Game AI, Finance, Transportation) will be presented. During the break time of the workshop, the attendee can experience the trained AIbots in Netease games and participate in the Human-Machine Competition with Netease Fever Basketball Game.

The workshop will invite five senior speakers from both academia and industry. We encourage researchers and practitioners interested in research opportunities in reinforcement learning to participate.
