Humboldt Lecture Series: Neural Reinforcement Learning
Abstract: Reinforcement learning has become a wide and deep conduit that links ideas and results in computer science, statistics, control theory and economics to a near century's worth of psychological data on animal and human decision-making, and a fantastic wealth of findings concerning the neural basis of choice. There is a ready and free flow of ideas among these disciplines, providing a powerful foundation for exploring some of the complexities of both normal and abnormal behaviours. I will provide an overview, illustrating the themes with examples showing how far we have come, and how far we still have to go.

The Humboldt Lecture Series gives Humboldt fellows who spend some time at Tübingen University the opportunity to present their work to a broader faculty. It thereby provides a platform to discuss the research of some of the most excellent researchers from all over the world in an interdisciplinary context. Additionally, the Humboldt Lecture Series is meant to be a meeting point for all international scholars at Tübingen University. The first lecturer coming up this Thursday ist Prof. Dr. Peter Dayan. The Humboldt Lectures are jointly organised by Welcome Center of Tübingen University, the Humboldt Club and Forum Scientiarum. The lecture series is supported by Alexander vom Humboldt Stiftung/Foundation
