DeepMind & MPG Establish a Research Program for Meta-Learned Models of Cognition

In the new paper Meta-Learned Models of Cognition, a team from the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, MPG) and DeepMind proposes the establishment of a research program focused on meta-learned models of cognition. The team cites machine learning papers demonstrating how meta-learning can be used to construct Bayes-optimal learning algorithms and suggests it can significantly expand the scope of the rational analysis of cognition.
