Reinforcement Learning (RL) is learning through direct experimentation. It does not assume the existence of a teacher that provides examples upon which learning of a task takes place. Instead, in RL experience is the only teacher. With historical roots on the study of conditioned reflexes, RL soon attracted the interest of Engineers and Computer Scientists because of its theoretical relevance and potential applications in fields as diverse as Operational Research and Robotics.
