As i learn more and more about machine learning and AI algorithms in general, i came across this book by *Sutton & Barto*, which is all about ** reinforcement learning**. As i read through the action-value topic, it seemed a nice R-challenge, so here’s the complete code:

To test one greedy player and two epsilon players, for example, just run

do.simulation(N = 500, plays = 1000, eps = c(0, 0.01, 0.1))

A quick explanation of some key parameters:

*N*: the number of replications for each simulation
*plays*: the number of moves for each player
*eps*: the probability of make a exploratory (random) move, for each player

That’s it, any comments or improvements are welcome, enjoy it!
