In the previous article — Part 1 — we have formulated the Markov Decision Process (MDP) as a paradigm to solve any Reinforcement Learning (RL) problem. However, the overarching framework discussed did not mention a systematic solution to the MDP. We have ruled out using linear techniques — like matrix inversion — and briefly raised the possibility of using iterative techniques to solve the MDP. To revisit the idea of MDP, check out the Part I below:

From this article onwards, relating to RL, we will… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
