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!
