Thursday Morning Talk: Manuel Lopes (hosted by Marc Toussaint): Optimal Behavior Without Optimal Rewards : Artificial Vs Natural

Abstract:
Research in robotics and A.I. aims at optimizing very specific task rewards. Intelligent animals have a high degree of curiosity, and recent
results have shown that instrumental reward optimization is a poor explanation for their behavior. We can show that to explain empirical
results from animals, we need to have the drive to optimize reward, a drive to reduce uncertainty, and a drive for positive cues. We then show examples in robotics where a more complex reward system provides benefits in learning.
