New publications

Jan Woehlke’s paper “Hierarchies of Planning and Reinforcement Learning for Robot Navigation” was accepted for presentation at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation.

Yijie Zhang got his paper “Deep Coherent Exploration For Continuous Control” accepted for presentation in the International Conference on Machine Learning.

Congrats Yijie & Jan! Links to the papers / preprint will follow soon on the publication page.

Open position for postdoctoral researcher

Update: Position has closed. Any jobs in our institute will be advertised here.

We are currently looking for a postdoctoral researcher for a collaboration on reinforcement learning with structured data. The position is offered as part of a collaboration with Elsevier and several other labs in Amsterdam. The collaboration will focus on fundamental research. More details can be found in the vacancy portal. Also please use the portal to submit your application if interested. Feel free to share the vacancy with anyone that might be interested.
