Lab's first CCN submissions

  • 07 June 2019

The Conference on Cognitive Computational Neuroscience (CCN) will be held in Berlin in September this year and provide an interdisciplinary forum for understanding the computations that underlie complex behavior. We have submitted two abstracts that introduce our work on meta-cognitive reinforcement learning and computational models of goal pursuit. We look forward to present our work at this exciting occasion!

Lab's first RLDM submissions

  • 02 March 2019

The lab has submitted three wonderful abstracts to this year's 4th Multidisciplinary Conference on Reinforcement Learning and Decision Making at the McGill University in Montréal. They introduce research around our intelligent cognitive tutor and cover aspects of overcoming present bias, inspecting cognitive decline, and a process-related approach to trace the evolution of planning skills. We keep our fingers crossed!
