My paper in the main portion of the conference deals with fitted value iteration or Q-learning for offline problems, {\em i.e.}, those where we have a model of the environment so that we can examine arbitrary transitions in arbitrary order. The same techniques also allow us to do Q-learning for an online problem, {\em i.e.}, one where we have no model but must instead perform experiments inside the MDP to gather data. I will describe how.
