TITLE:   Batch Mode Reinforcement Learning based on the Synthesis of Artificial

ABSTRACT:  In this talk, we consider the batch mode reinforcement
learning setting, where the central problem is to learn from a sample of
trajectories a policy that satisfies or optimizes a performance criterion.
We focus on the continuous state space case for which usual resolution
schemes rely on function approximators either to represent the underlying
control problem or to represent its value function. As an alternative to
the use of function approximators, we rely on the synthesis of
"artificial trajectories"
from the given sample of trajectories, and show that this idea opens new
avenues for designing and analyzing algorithms for batch mode reinforcement
