The Hi! PARIS reading groups propose to study a topic using scientific articles on a theoretical and a practical point of view. The reading groups are opportunities of interaction between our corporate donors and our affiliates academic teams around selected topics of interest.
Each Edition is planned for 2-4 sessions presenting one topic by the mean of 3-4 research papers. For each session: presentation of mathematical models and theoretical advances by a researcher + simulations with a Python notebook by an engineer

Edition 4 - Reinforcement Learning
For the third edition of the Hi! PARIS Reading groups, we propose an introduction to Reinforcement Learning.
More info to come in January.
Tuesday 14 February, 2023 – 2.00-3.30pm (Online)
– Charlotte Laclau, Telecom Paris – IP Paris
During this reading group, I will start we a brief introduction to the reinforcement learning setting with a focus on policy learning. I will then present GCPN (Graph Convolutional Policy Network), an approach that combines graph representation learning with reinforcement learning to generate realistic (novel) molecule graphs with desired chemical properties. The session will end with a practical application of this approach on two use cases.
