Bayesian reinforcement learning (BRL) offers a decision-theoretic solution for reinforcement learning. Recently, Lee [1] proposed a Sparse Bayesian Reinforce-ment Learning (SBRL) approach to memorize the past expe-riences during the training of a reinforcement learning agent for knowledge transfer [17] and continuous action search [18]. BO is attrac-tive for this problem because it exploits Bayesian prior information about the expected return and exploits this knowledge to select new policies to execute. RKRL not only improves learn-ing in several domains, but does so in a way that cannot be matched by any choice of standard kernels. Solving a finite Markov decision process using techniques from dynamic programming such as value or policy iteration require a complete model of the environmental dynamics.
