Reinforcement Learning: Modelling Sequential Decision Making Problems.

  • Speaker: Constantinos Mitsopoulos, Department of Psychology, Birkbeck, University of London.
  • Date: Thursday, 5 March 2015 from 16:00 to 17:00
  • Location: Room 151, Birkbeck Main Building

Reinforcement Learning is a field emerged from Psychology, that spans artificial intelligence, operations research, statistics and control theory. It is the main framework used to study human/animal decision making and learning. In this talk I will describe the general RL framework and how it is used in Artificial Intelligence and behaviour analysis. I will demonstrate its applications, combined with Hierarchical Bayesian methods, in modelling human mental planning in a simple puzzle task.
