    Abstract

    In this paper we present an approach that combines an artificial agent constructed from a general solution to the reinforcement learning problem and the Canadian Fire Weather Index. The study illustrates that the integration of AIXI and the problem of action selection in wildfire management scenarios simultaneously downscales the AIXI model and offers a practical demonstration of applied AIXI theory, while also illustrating the potential usefulness of such a tool in fire and natural resource management.
