Action Grammars are going to CCN!

August 03, 2019

News, Technical University Berlin, Berlin, Germany

Super exciting news! Parts of my masters’s thesis project (supervised by Professor Aldo Faisal) got accepted at the Cognitive Computational Neuroscience conference 2019. We combine Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning & Grammar Induction to define a set of temporally-extended actions… aka an Action Grammar! The resulting temporal abstractions can be used to efficiently tackle imitation, transfer and online learning.

Bucharest - I am coming! Very happy to attend the Recent Advances in Artificial Intelligence conference from 28th to 30th of June. I will present my work on Deep Multi-Agent RL for swarm dynamics in a poster session. Furthermore, my work has also been selected to be presented at the super-duper awesome EEML summer school. Can’t wait to meet the hero of temporal abstractions Doina Precup and Mr “Policy Distillation” Andrei Rusu.
