Tim’s and Elise’s NeurIPS papers accepted

Two of our submissions to NeurIPS were accepted. Elise’s work on MDP homomorphic networks focuses on exploiting symmetries in the state-action space, and is already available as preprint here. Tim’s work focuses on the use of policy search strategies to optimize MRI acquisition strategies. Congrats, Tim and Elise!

Jin’s RecSys paper accepted

Jin Huang got a paper accepted into RecSys 2020. Her paper focuses on learning a debiased simulator from a biased data to train recommender agents using reinforcement learning. Congrats Jin!

Open PhD position in collaboration with NS and HU

We have an open PhD position on finding heuristics using deep reinforcement learning for complex planning problems. Besides the university of Amsterdam, this project involves NS (Dutch railways) and the HU University of Applied Sciences, Utrecht. More information here.

Invited talk by Jens Kober

The Delta lab will host a talk by dr. Jens Kober on “Robots Learning (Through) Interactions” on May 7th. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, the talk will be live-streamed. More information on the Delta lab page.

Open PhD position

(Position is now closed)

We have an open PhD position on the topic of using symbolic knowledge representation as prior knowledge in reinforcement learning systems. This position is part of the Hybrid Intelligence centre, where we are currently recruiting 13 PhDs and postdocs across the Netherlands with another 14 positions to be announced soon.
