Cooperation in Humans and Machines

Patrick Shafto, Mathematics and Computer Science, Rutgers University, Newark

Location:  Core 431
Date & time: Friday, 07 February 2020 at 10:00AM - 11:00AM

Abstract: Cooperation, specifically cooperative information sharing, is a basic principle of human intelligence. Machine learning, in contrast, focuses on learning from randomly sampled data, which neither leverages others' cooperation nor prioritizes the ability to communicate what has been learned. I will discuss ways in which our understanding of human learning may be leveraged to develop new machine learning, and form a foundation for improved integration of machine learning into human society.
