    The Post-Covid-19 Surprising Contingencies

    Can anyone truly proclaim accurately the exact strategies that will work post-covid-19? Humanly speaking, I think not! We can sure make calculated guesses and chart our entry/exit strategies but we must prepare to have surprising contingencies. Let me give this analogy: In reinforcement learning, a subset of machine learning, a model learns by interacting with a dynamic environment where it is expected to take a sequence of actions with a goal to maximise cumulative reward. For each action, it gets an immediate feedback (or reinforcement) from an “interpreter”: a positive reinforcement (reward) for a right action (e.g., correctly predicting something), and a negative reinforcement (punishment) for an incorrect one.
