Sure.
 I thought my mails were public, but as you've pointed out, they arent. I
notice that I have replied to your email id instead of the mailing list.
 I would keep in mind that my mails go public.

Thank you

Hello Akash,

do you mind if I responde to this on the public mailing list? That way more
people can jump in and provide input.

Best,
Marcus

Hey Marcus,

Thanks a lot for replying.
I was occupied with the examination and assignment load so I was inactive
the previous weeks.
 I have read 'Playing Atari with Deep Reinforcement Learning'. I would like
to share that my previous semester's project was on demonstrating how Deep
Reinforcement Learning could be applied on Self driving cars. I had read
this paper for the background study and it helped a lot in creating a
software model for the project. This project involved a hardware
implementation that was possible using ROS.
Now we are preparing a paper to publish regarding the same.

I have been active in the part of reading the mailing list. I like the idea
of creating tutorials on OpenAI gym. I would love to help in making it
possible. We could even extend this idea not only the tutorials but to
blogs that not only have tutorials on using OpenAI gym but also on machine
learning techniques and algorithms, that would have beginner to advanced
level tutorials on using mlpack for machine learning, just like scikit
learn and TensorFlow. This would help newbies in ML who already have
knowledge of C++ easily use mlpack.

As suggested I would move forward with policy gradients. I know I am late,
and I hope to catch up as fast as possible.
Thank you
