    As far as current SOTA applications, you can just Google it and find plenty of examples of RL being used outside the realm of games.

Another example is resource optimization, which is probably currently being developed, if not used, in a lot of technical domains. As u/daddabarba pointed out, RL can also be used in other areas of AI, like text generation.
