15.1 Introduction

Reinforcement learning is a machine learning approach in which an intelligent agent learns to take actions to maximize a reward. We will apply this to the design of a Titan landing control system. Reinforcement learning is a tool to approximate solutions that could have been obtained by dynamic programming, but whose exact solutions are computationally intractable [3].

We’ll start the chapter by modeling the ...
