Exposes a wide array of topics
I am a first-year PhD student and I love this podcast. It helps me to be exposed to so many idea and find fellow RL researchers. Thank you Robin for putting this together.
If you are looking for a podcast to help you advance in the field and become a better RL researcher than this is the podcast for you!5
Unexpected gem to learn deeply about RL
I had the pleasure of finding this podcast as a listener and then being on it within a month or two. Robin does a great job and is here to help improve the experience for the community.
Will help listeners rapidly get up to date with the happenings in reinforcement learning.
Love the pod cast!
Great to have a podcast that digs into the technical detail of RL!!
