Can I do state space quantization using a KMeans-like algorithm instead of range buckets?


Are there any reference papers where it is used a KMeans-like algorithm in state space quantization in Reinforcement Learning instead of range buckets?

There is this paper Representation and Reinforcement Learning for Personalized Glycemic Control in Septic Patients, presented in the Machine Learning for Health Workshop in NIPS 2017. Here is a quote from the paper where the authors describe the clustering approach:

After we generated the state representation, we used the k-means clustering algorithm to categorize millions of patient states into 500 clusters such that similar clinical states can collapse into the same cluster.
