We propose a strategy for experiment selection - in the context of reinforcement learning - based on the idea that the most interesting experiments to carry out at some stage are those that are the most liable to falsify the current hypothesis about the optimal control policy. We cast this idea in a context where a policy learning algorithm and a model identification method are given a priori. Experiments are selected if, using the learnt environment model, they are predicted to yield a revision of the learnt control policy. Algorithms and simulation results are provided for a deterministic system with discrete action space. They show that the proposed approach is promising.
