Reinforcement learning provides problem formulations from the world of robotics and to arguably life itself. It also provides a set of solutions to such problems which may be explored in a computationally realistic manner with the help of neural networks, and thus we have deep reinforcement learning. As amazing as fields like robotics are to behold, the field of video games offers a more practical way of investigating the various deep reinforcement techniques. This thesis brings the concepts of deep reinforcement learning to Atari and NES games while keeping the approach as general as possible.
