Representation learning and option discovery are two of the biggest challenges in reinforcement learning (RL). Proto-RL is a well known approach for representation learning in MDPs. The representations learned with this framework are called proto-value functions (PVFs). In this paper we address the option discovery problem by showing how PVFs implicitly define options.

    Many tasks require building and using a model --- eg, to relate a patient's disease state with the possible symptoms, underlying causes, and effects of various treatments. These relationships are often probabilistic; eg a disease will often, but not always, manifest certain symptoms. Bayesian Belief Nets (BNs), which provide a succinct way to represent such probabilistic models, are in routine use for a wide range of applications, including medicine, bioinformatics, document classification, image processing and decision support systems.

    Ethnicity is an important variable in epidemiological research. Canada is an ethnically diverse country, yet its insufficiency of ethnicity data impedes research progress and policy development in public health domains. This data gap negatively affects Aboriginal Canadians in particular as their health inequality may remain hidden. Automated name- and location-based ethnicity classification has shown potential but its applicability within the Canadian context is largely unknown.
