I'm training an RL agent using the DQN algorithm to do a specific task. The environment is represented by a list of $10$ integer numbers from $0$ to $20$. An example would be $[5, 15, 8, 8, 0, \dots]$.
Is it okay to pass the list as floats to the dense layer, or would that impede the learning process? What is the right way to go about passing integer numbers to the neural network?
