This report presents an approximate dynamic programming (ADP) technique for environment modelling agents. The agent learns a set of parallel stochastic planning operators (P-SPOs) by evaluating changes in its environment in response to actions, using an association rule mining approach. An approximate policy is then derived by iteratively improving state value aggregation estimates attached to the operators using the P-SPOs as a model in a Dyna-Q-like architecture. Reinforcement learning and dynamic programming are powerful techniques for automated agent decision making in stochastic environments. Dynamic programming is effective when there is a known environmen...
