My current research focus is on how to make RL agents learn effectively using knowledge leveraged from humans or other agents. I am interested in various kinds of advice modalities from humans with varying degrees of expertise and want to build systems that can seamlessly integrate such knowledge into a decision making framework. I am also interested in data efficient learning paradigms like active learning and cost-sensitive learning.
Curious about the relation between AI and human intelligence. Interested in applying Reinforcement learning to human-intelligence tasks, especially language learning and understanding.
I believe that I am in a continuous and life long process of learning which drives my passion for trying out new technologies and learning new skills. My interest areas include Reinforcement Learning, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing.
My research interests are representation learning, reinforcement learning and machine learning with a focus on building general-purpose AI agents. My previous research experience in computer vision and deep learning.
I have past experience in Computer Vision, Robotics, Data Mining and Natural Language Processing. Currently, my main interest is in the field of Reinforcement Learning
I have a background in electronic and telecommunication with 3 years experience working as a radio engineer. I'm in the AMMI (African Master in Machine Intelligence) and am interested in Reinforcement Learning, autonomous navigation and multiagent systems.
Interested in the intersection between AI and psychology and how to apply human learning methods to AI agents. My research interests includes reinforcement learning and deep learning.
