abstract={
Standard reinforcement learning algorithms gener-
ate polices that optimize expected future rewards
in a priori unknown domains, but they assume that
the domain does not change over time. Prior work
cast the reinforcement learning problem as a
Bayesian estimation problem, using experience data
to condition a probability distribution over
domains. In this paper we propose an elaboration of
the typical Bayesian model that accounts for the
possibility that some aspect of the domain
changes spontaneously during learning. We develop
a reinforcement learning algorithm based on this
model that we expect to react more intelligently to
sudden changes in the behavior of the environment.
