From SAP Hybris
Lars works as Technology Strategist at SAP Hybris in Munich as member of the Hybris Labs team. He is interested in all kinds of new technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT), Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Machine Learning, Minecraft and more. Before the computer science degree, he completed an apprenticeship as communication electronics (wireless technology).
Project Malmo was initiated by Microsoft Research as a platform to use Minecraft as an AI testing ground. It's not about playing the game, it's about using Minecraft as an experimental AI platform. In my talk I'll take a look into reinforcement learning and how to solve individual problems with (deep) reinforcement learning, Minecraft, and project Malmo.
