Assignment 23: Episode
1 Value Function
Implementing Eq. 1 can cause confusion because V (S) is on both sides of the equation and
in Python V (S) is a dictionary. This document will help explain lines 23−25 in Algorithm 1.
V (St) = V (St) + α[Rt+1 + γV (St+1) − V (St)] (1)
Although lines 23 and 24 appear to update the valueFunction dictionary in Algorithm 1,
they do not. Lines 23 and 24 are retrieve information from the value function dictionary.
The introduction of two new variables, v st1 and v st0, to replace V (St+1) and V (St), would
help to clarify that only line 25 changes the dictionary.
v st1 ⇐ GetValueOf(board)
v st0 ⇐ GetValueOf(previousState)
V (St) ⇐ v st0+session.learningRate×(reward+(session.discountRate×v st1)−v st0)
Furthermore, GetValueOf(...) is a multistep process (1) get the key from the board (2)
check if the key is in valueFunction, either i. the key is in valueFunction —return the
value associated with the key in the dictionary, e.g., return self.valueFunction[key] or
ii. the key is not in valueFunction —add the key to the dictionary, initialise its value
to zero and return 0. It would be best to add a new method, getValueOf(self, board),
which does all of this. In Algorithm 1, lines 23 and 24, both board and previousState are
TicTacToe objects.

Algorithm 1 This method executes a single tictactoe game and updates the state value
table after every move played by the RL agent.
