Algorithms for interactive learning
In this 45-minute talk at the University of Southern California, Dasgupta looks at the progress of supervised learning over the years and poses a question about how supervised learning algorithms and techniques can be adapted to interactive learning, in which a machine interacts with the human operator. He asserts... more
