Serves as a reference for some of the key terms used in this documentation.

A

Action

What the agent performs in an environment in order to obtain a reward.

Agent

Who takes decisions in an environment based on rewards and punishments.

B

Bench

A virtual environement that allows for a series of operations to occur.

C

Characterization

The process of analyzing a vessel such that we are able to determine its contents.

Command Line

A place where a user can enter commands into the computer from a terminal.

D

Distillation

Distillation is a process where materials in a mixture are seperated using their boiling points.

E

Environment

Medium in which a Lab Manager and/or agent interacts with vessels or other agents performing necessary operations.

Extraction

Extraction is a separation process consisting in the separation of a substance from a matrix using different densities.

L

Lab Manager

Lab managers direct actions and inspect results from sub agents that carry out tasks for individual benches. It also takes in materials from bench to bench using a vessel.

M

Material

A material is a substance or mixture of substances that constitutes an object.

R

Reinforcement Learning

A type of Machine Learning that uses an agent to perform actions in an environment in order to receive optimal outcomes and maximize rewards.

Reward

Method used to train Machine Learning models to make optimal decisions.

S

Solute

The component that is not present in excess in the solution.

Solvent

The liquid in which a solute is dissolved to form a solution.

V

Vessel

A container used to hold mixtures or materials in ChemGymRL experiments.
