A framework for developing intelligent agents. Aside from being founded on what
I consider to be a very good base (in terms of assumptions and approach, e.g.
use of model-free methods), it abstracts away the need for the developer to even
understand what it's doing under the covers. The idea is that a developer only
needs to understand the domain in which they are working well enough to model it
within the framework's api/context (which is basically understanding the range

about it from someone who has used it in a production context, and had only good
