Recurrent Neural Networks Reinforcement Learning Artificial Curiosity Optimization AI in Games.

About

I am doing a postdoc in machine learning at NYU in Yann LeCun's lab. Just recently I completed my Ph.D. at IDSIA/TU Munich, supervised by Jürgen Schmidhuber. I grew up in Luxembourg, and completed my studies in computer engineering at the EPFL in Switzerland, at Columbia University and at the University of Waterloo. I work on (modular) reinforcement learning, black-box optimization, (deep and/or recurrent) neural networks, artificial curiosity and related topics.
