We choose to use Q-learning for this research, not for its demonstrated efficacy within the domain but more for its wide applicability to applied domains published previously [10] [8] [22]. The update rule for Q-learning is defined as Q(s, a) ← Q(s, a) + α[r + γQ(s , a ) − Q(s, a)] (1) and calculated each time a state is reached which is nonterminal. Approximations of Qπ (s, a) which are indicative as to the benefit of taking action a while in state s, are calculated after each time interval. Actions are chosen based on π, the policy being followed.

To model the effects with respect to temperature changes we simulate using the following configuration. 3Kg/m3 . For simulation purposes we assume a resistive heater is heating the room and it’s 100% efficient, meaning that if it’s rated 1kW it is outputting 1kW of heat energy into the room. We modelled the effects of heating on a perfectly uniform cubed shaped room which has a surface area of 54m2 . 5 respectively. If the outside temperature ot at time t is 10◦ C and the inside room temperature rt is 20◦ C, then the temperature difference between inside and out is 10◦ C.

Thus, in CBI the training labels should be drawn from a limited set of classes and credit should not be awarded for returning clusters about the known classes. Furthermore, although we appreciate that obtaining labeled data can be costly in practice, there should be no assumption on the part of the method that the number of labeled cases will be small (it can be easy enough to gather many similar training cases in some domains using a simple binary classifier). For these reasons and others, we developed a new experiment protocol suited for evaluating CBI tasks.
