This is the 1st developer-focused e-book on bandit algorithms, that have been formerly defined merely in learn papers. You’ll speedy research the advantages of a number of basic algorithms—including the epsilon-Greedy, Softmax, and top self belief certain (UCB) algorithms—by operating via code examples written in Python, that you may simply adapt for deployment by yourself website.
Learn the fundamentals of A/B testing—and realize while it’s larger to take advantage of bandit algorithms
Develop a unit checking out framework for debugging bandit algorithms
Get extra code examples written in Julia, Ruby, and JavaScript with supplemental on-line fabrics
